Learning occurs within the realm of several venues. We can learn from the mistakes of others, as well as the successes.
We can learn from teachers who have academic credentials and those who simply have experience.
Learning is not the issue. We are learning something everyday from someone. We cannot help it and we cannot resist it. Everything we see with our eyes, hear with our ears, smell with our nose and feel with our hands creates a learning situation.
However, it is the importance of what we learn that really makes the difference.
Just from a spiritual perspective, are we learning information that promotes a greater knowledge of God’s word, closer relationship with the Savior, and a walk that is according to the Spirit?
Is our fellowship with brothers and sisters characterized by love, patience, and an understanding that promotes family?
Learning matters that are spiritual in nature provides a foundation for lasting leadership. When considering the importance of learning remember it is the importance of what we learn that is most important.
