When expecting students to learn about different subjects, it is important for the students to understand how people in these subjects learn. For example, students learning science can benefit from participating in practices that are similar to those used by scientists. Students can see and hear as part of their learning, but it is when they need to practice that a deeper understanding emerges.
To deepen our understanding of what we learn from God, from listening and studying His Word and the examples in it, we need to do more than be passive listeners. We need to take the lessons we learn and put them into practice! By doing and practicing what God has shown and told us can help us develop a deeper understanding and a deeper relationship with Him. We can then continue to learn, discover, and practice more about the glory, power, grace, and mercy of God!
Don't just listen to God's lessons. Put them into practice!
Thank You for all that You teach me. Help me to put Your lessons into practice so I can continue to learn and develop a deeper relationship with You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
