Just a Word: Learn

Look out for this feature every Wednesday!

Learn: just a word.

Learn: to acquire knowledge of, or skill in, by study, instruction, practice or experience.

Learn: from the moment of birth we learn. We learn of our surroundings, comfort and pain, hunger and satisfaction, love and kindness and a multitude of experiences throughout life. Learning never ceases. As children we learn in our schooling. Study and instruction prepare us for being productive adults, and we acquire skills to provide a living for ourselves and others.

Learn: it has been said that experience is the best teacher. I have to agree. The experiences in my life have formed and continue to form who I am. Acquired knowledge and skills have been profitable, but experience is what guides me. Some experiences I would rather not have had. Others, I could never give enough to have had them.

Learn: in order to learn through knowledge, skill or experience, we must be willing to learn. We must be willing to excel as well as to fail. We must be able to recognize and take account of the things we learn.

Learn: as we learn, it is important to pass on the things we have knowledge and experience of to others. Learning must turn into teaching so that we can impact those around us in a positive and edifying manner.

Learn: make today a day of greater knowledge and experience.
