In Philippians 3:12 Paul says he’s not “arrived”. Quite a statement considering Philippians was written near the end of his life. Solomon who had some good ideas as well adds, Wise men are always open to new ideas. In fact, they look for them. (Proverbs 18:15). Learning – seeking wisdom, is a key to life and work. And as we get older we should be learning faster. Our experiences both in the Spirit and in the world plus our greater understanding of the Word enable us to gain better, godlier, understanding, quicker.
Learning is available to all, whatever our age, education, wealth, status. The opportunities to learn are as endless as the heavens. The ability to learn, and apply what we learn is essential to maturing in Christ. The Scriptures teach us that learning is an attitude, something we are to daily seek. In the marketplace, in a changing world, there’s lots to learn. Let’s be learners.
