Public school started back up this week here in my hometown. My siblings go back to homeschool the week after Labor Day, I am heading back to my edits soon and our own blogger friend, Amber is hitting the books at the college campus, starting today I do believe.
There was something my dad told me, over and over and though I didn't often like to hear it, because it meant I would never reach the end, he told me, I would never stop learning.
To my finite brain, it sounded like I would be in a physical school for forever. But as I have gotten older (and hopefully smarter) I see the wisdom in that piece of advice.
Because we do, never stop learning.
The craft of fiction alone, never stops. Authors who have been writing for years and penned decades of books are still eager to learn. To know more about what the industry is requiring. And I must say I am ever eager to learn more about this craft.
Have you ever thought if we knew everything? How prideful we might become if we knew it all? Even Satan in the Garden of Eden, tempted Eve if she ate the forbidden fruit, she would become like God, she would know everything. If we ever reached a point where we have learned everything, what reverence would we hold for the soverenity of God? To turn to Him for the need for Him in our lives?
In no matter what aspect of our life, we should never yearn to cease learning. To continue to grow, continue to stretch our minds, continue to look to God as the fount of knowledge and understanding and wisdom.
Be ever eager to know more, to study and embrace the love and life God has given to us. Be ever eager to know more about Him, because only through studying Him, will we love Him more, worship Him with a great understanding and reverence.
