Higher Learning

Every experience you have presents a unique opportunity to learn something new. Whether good or bad, those experiences can lead to a wiser, healthier, more reliable you. I especially enjoy learning how the stories, commands, and principles of the Bible can positively impact my life.


So with that said, here are seven examples of what the Bible says about learning:

Proverbs 1:7 — The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Psalm 32:8 — I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Philippians 4:9 — What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

1st Thessalonians 5:11 — Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Psalm 25:4 — Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.

Proverbs 12:1 — Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.

Psalm 143:10 — Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!


There you have it — a quick look at (some of) the Bible’s principles of learning. And it’s with great humility that I continue to learn from the courage, defiance, obedience, and faithfulness of the key personalities in the Bible, and I hope you’re able to do the same.
