How We Learn

Pinned Image

    The way we learn is an individual characteristic, usually visual or audible.  I personally am a visual learner and have always preferred reading something myself as opposed to being read to.  Our brains just respond differently to things according to our genetic wiring.  There is no one way, right way to teach everyone the same thing.
    When witnessing to others, we must approach them on their level. 1 Corinthians 3;2  ''I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.''  Sometimes our head knowledge can be so overwhelming to another person, that their heart doesn't even get touched.  Our words should be encouraging not boastful.
    Our lives are full of tests to teach us the lessons of life.  Wouldn't it be nice to learn those the first time, just like 2 plus 2=4.  Our learning curve is subjected to the fall of man, sin. Those trials and tests tho strengthen our faith thru adversity.  We see more clearly our need for a Savior, when we recognize our dependency.  From, ''from God's perspective, suffering is what produces faithful Christians. If we all had lives of ease without opposition, trials, or pain, we'd never really know God, because we'd never need Him.''  
    The lessons will continue until all our tests are all over one day.  Keep learning something new each day from Him.
