Two Minutes in the Bible Through Proverbs

DAY 1 OF 5

Keep Learning

Wise men and women are lifelong learners. The knowledge and understanding that served us well last year will not be sufficient for following years. The lessons we are learning today are preparing us for tomorrow. Wise and discerning people listen and learn. They listen to people around them and learn what to do and what not to do.

Another person’s tragedy can warn us of decisions to avoid. When you see a family destroyed by debt, you learn the discipline of saving. On the other hand, another person’s triumph can teach us to embrace good choices. The sacrifice of a mom who stays home to serve her family increases the probability of children with character. Listen to her life and learn how to teach little ones to love Jesus. Always keep learning. (Proverbs 9:9)

Your counsel increases in value as you grow in wisdom and discernment. Lazy learners tend to be ignored. Others desire to learn from an educated life, so seek out a mentor who models learning. Meet weekly with this person, and invite him or her to challenge your assumptions and question your answers more than answer your questions. Oral learning through the exchange of ideas unlocks and applies wisdom. You are positioned to learn in an audience of one with graying hair.

Above all, learn by submission to God and His Word. A humble life can be trusted with God’s wisdom and the Holy Spirit’s discernment. As you live a life of compassion and mercy, your knowledge will be converted to wisdom. Keep learning, and the Lord will lift you to new levels of influence. Stop learning, and you will sink into irrelevance. Learning expands your kingdom effectiveness and deepens your character. (Proverbs 2:6)

What lessons do I need to learn today to better serve the Lord and others tomorrow?
