Learning is a process of getting new or modifying existing, knowledge, behaviours, skills, values or preferences. One major characteristic of learning is that it produces changes. As I said in the definition above, learning is a process and until you have completed that process, learning has not been accomplished. The essence of learning is change and if what you claim to be learning is not producing any change in you, you have not really learnt.
Philippians 4:9-10 – “The things which came to you by my teaching and preaching, and which you saw in me, these things do, and the God of peace will be with you (Bible in Basic English).” This passage gives a clearer picture of what I am dealing with here. It shows that you have learnt when you apply the knowledge you have acquired by the ministry of teaching, preaching, life doctrines, practical trainings, disciplines, corrections, instructions and reproof of a father into your life. Do not forget this concept because it is the true process of learning.
The Bible says that some people are always learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. The problem is that they acquired all the information but they did not apply it to their lives and so it never produced the expected change. In essence, they did not learn.Tomorrow, I will be showing you key critical areas of learning for a leader.
PRAYER: Lord, I take the position of a learner in the kingdom; I open up to righteous kingdom changes in Jesus’ name. Amen!
