What is learning?
Learning can be defined as a process of getting new or modifying existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values or preferences. One major characteristic of learning is that it produces change(s). Learning is a process and until you have completed that process, learning has not been accomplished. The essence of learning is change. If what you claimed to be learning is not producing any change in you, you have not really learnt. Acquisition of learning will change your orientation, thought, and attitude on a subject matter and this is what will produce a strong drive for change in the direction of the new thought, orientation and attitude. It is when this has happened that we can say that you have learnt that subject matter and not necessarily that you were present in class when it was being taught, made notes and even passed written examinations on it. The bible says in Philipians 4:9
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).
The scripture above shows that when you applied 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, that is when you have learnt. Do not forget this concept. This is the true process of learning. The Bible says that some people were always learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. The problem was that they acquired all the information but they did not apply it into their lives and so never produced the change it is supposed to bring. In essence, they did not learn.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to learn correctly as you bring me across fathers and tutors in life and destiny. Amen!
