Learning occurs in several arenas. We learn from the mistakes of others as well as the successes. We learn by observation, teaching, personal study, and experience. We learn from teachers with academic credentials and others who simply have experience.
Learning is not the issue. We learn something everyday. 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. The empirical connection to our learning demonstrates the value of today’s post.
However, the importance of what we learn really makes the difference.
Just from a spiritual perspective, we learn information that promotes a greater knowledge of God’s word, a closer relationship with the Savior, and a walk in step with the Spirit.
Our fellowship with brothers and sisters must be 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 what we learn that carries the greatest importance.
