Intellectual knowledge on the other hand is passed on profession wise, and this is mostly connected with earthly interests. Love gives, without demanding payment, but who demands such, does not stand in love, but just in the profession. He reaps the benefits from his intellectual knowledge and only puts love on the second place. Read more:

Recognizing truth and utilizing in love.

8. July 1951. B.D. NR. 5167.

The knowledge of man does not makes up his happiness, but the utilizing of the knowledge, because love is necessary for it and love alone has an effect making happy. And so man can certainly possess knowledge, without living in love. But then it is only a pure intellectual knowledge, won through study, through eager thinking about problems, which certainly project into a spiritual area, but can only then be called spiritual knowledge, when man has been instructed by the spirit in him about it through a love life. Having received extensive knowledge does not yet guarantee the possession of it, because what has been won through intellectual activity, is just as transient as all earthly knowledge, even so it is of spiritual content. It is a dead knowledge, which has already on earth no enlivening effect and gets completely lost in the hereafter. Only love awakens the letter to life; only love gives understanding for spiritual knowledge, and only love lets this knowledge make happy. But love constantly shares what makes itself happy, to also make fellowman happy. But knowledge will again only then make happy, so it is received with a loving heart.

From it you men see that always only love determines the degree of knowledge, in which men stand, because although a loving men still lacks knowledge, he will however have understanding for it immediately, so it is presented to him. Love recognizes truth, and love also utilizes it. Who has right truth, cannot otherwise than to pass it on, because love drives him to it, but he must also stand in love to have recognized it as truth. Nevertheless man can also support knowledge, which is not according to truth, but then he is to ruthlessly give answer to himself to the question: In which degree am I willing to love? - And this answer is also the degree gauge for truth of that, what he supports. A man active in love is full of eagerness to serve God, because he has recognized him as father and creator from eternity, as the most perfect being, of which he knows as being loved. And for that reason he will serve him with the whole heart and the whole soul, even so it is not visible outwardly. But one thing he will not neglect, to point fellowmen to him and seek to move them to have faith in him. Because who himself believes, also wants to bring fellowman to it, to devote himself to the father as child. And for that reason he will always supply that, what he himself knows, to fellowman. This knowledge is full of truth and increases with increased love activity. Intellectual knowledge on the other hand is passed on profession wise, and this is mostly connected with earthly interests. Love gives, without demanding payment, but who demands such, does not stand in love, but just in the profession. He reaps the benefits from his intellectual knowledge and only puts love on the second place. And this knowledge will not bring much blessing; it just stimulates again to intellectual activity, but the heart remains untouched and does not get to know the happiness of the receiving of truth. Because that knowledge can be truth, but without love is not recognized as such. For that reason first of all cultivate love, and what is then offered to you as knowledge that hand out again in love. Only then your knowledge increases and remains your spiritual property, which is immortal and enables you to happy making activity in the opposite kingdom and again causes happiness. Amen. B.D. NR. 5167.
