“It is one thing to take a course, to complete your work, to receive a diploma or earn a degree; it’s another thing to remain a student for the rest of your life, to stay hungry for knowledge, to be curious, to read widely, to be adventurous, to be creative, and to be on a never-ending pursuit of truth.” – Charles Swindoll
2 Timothy 3:14
14 But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught.
In our world today, we can learn a lot of things from different kinds of outlets. There’s the internet. We can learn, study or understand things just by typing our questions in google. Yet, we miss a lot of things. Too preoccupied with thinking of a post in facebook, twitter or instagram. Then we say we are too busy to learn because of time but we have 5-10 minutes to spare to check posts in our social media.
Having or posting in social media is not the problem. It’s the lack of drive to learn. Just having a hungry spirit for learning. Because those who want to learn are resourceful, interesting, broad-minded, and usually well-traveled. Learners stay open-minded, challenged by life’s mysteries; they’re unwilling to stay glued to a television or to be swayed by the majority’s opinion. Meaning, they can’t be affected by peer pressure because they know the do’s and don’ts’. Because there is no source of information that can elude them.
So if we want to transform our lives, we should start studying and learning so we know how to navigate in today’s world.
