For my determined purpose is that I may know Him that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him… - Phil. 3:10
Learning gets you excluded from the circle of ignoramus. It is a way of getting exempted from the long-list of people who lack the appetite for knowledge. If you are passionate about learning, you will not be stagmatized as clueless. Continuous learning helps you to be up to the minute with fresh and first-class information. When learning becomes your culture, you will certainly become a mine of information with the capacity to keep people abreast of what is trending and would also help them know the right course of action to take.
The learning process begins with the right Attitude (A) towards learning. The right attitude gives you the driving force to pursue knowledge. The right attitude towards learning enables you to create the atmosphere to build up your knowledge base. It is irrational to jump the gun in the learning process. That means you must first learn to walk before you can run. This speaks to learning the Basic (B) information. In the order of learning, you begin with the elementary before progressing to the complicated.
It is mind-blogging to know that many people have a one-track mind because they squash vital opportunity to broaden their horizon. They allow juicy opportunity to learn to pass by while they prefer to remain in their Comfort (C) zone. The writer of Hebrews expressed his displeasure when he identified that a category of believers who ought to have been teachers of the word of God still required teaching on the elementary principles of Christ. They were only comfortable with the little they know about God. They either refuse to learn more, unlearn or re-learn as the case may be.
Conversely, Apostle Paul had a different attitude towards learning. He wanted to know the hidden secrets and mystery of the kingdom of God, which is not easily accessible. That explains his desire to understand Difficult (D) or complex revelations. That was why he cried out, “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection…” (Phil 3:10). The question is, “Where are you in the learning process?” , “Have you the right attitude towards learning or are you just comfortable with elementary information?” Hence, desire to broaden your horizon so you could become a resourceful mine of information to be reckoned with. May the Lord bestow on you the right attitude to learn and keep learning all the way, for personal growth and for global impact in Jesus name.
