I have more understanding than all my teachers,
For Your testimonies are my meditation...
Make Your face shine upon Your servant,
And teach me Your statutes.
~ Psalm 119:99,135 (NKJV)
A good teacher imparts knowledge in a way the student can grasp. An excellent teacher goes beyond transfer of information and imparts the wisdom to apply knowledge.
The exceptional teacher may also lead a student to understanding—the "aha!" moment of comprehending the power of knowledge and wisdom.
Yet understanding is not a gift from the teacher. In the favor of His face shining upon us, the Lord alone grants the understanding that empowers us to take anything we learn and use it for something of enduring significance—in our lives and the lives of those we love.
Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
~ Proverbs 4:7 (NKJV)
