A Life Full of Learning
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. (Philippians 4:11)
Paul wrote to the church of Philippi of something he had learned about contentment. Notice this, Paul, who wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, was still learning things.
You never get to a place on this planet where you have learned everything.
I have been around for a while, and I still learn new things all the time. I encourage you always to be looking for opportunities to learn something new.
If you get to a place where you feel like you have learned everything there is to learn, your mind will begin to die.
Learning is not for the young; learning is for everyone who is alive.
I’m called to increase in knowledge and wisdom and so are you. Doing so is being a good steward of the mind that God has given us to use and utilize.
I never read the Bible with the mindset that I already know enough or that I've taught this subject or this verse many times previously. I always read it with a hunger to understand more of what God wants to teach me and show me.
Always search for opportunities to increase and learn new things.
Practical Application – Read several Scripture verses today that you have already memorized and are familiar with. Ask God to reveal something new. Let Him teach you something new from something familiar. Be open to growing as God gives you opportunities to learn.
