The ideal way
Q: What’s the best way to learn?
A: Listen to what God says in His word—then do it! When we do, a very positive outcome is guaranteed (Psalm 1:1-3; James 1:21-25).
Another good way to learn is by profiting from others’ choices, both good or bad, so we can avoid the pitfalls they experienced (Ezekiel 18:14-17), and imitate instead those whose lives are a blessing (Philippians 3:17).
The hard way
Then the third option. The only way some people ever learn is the hard way. Suffering the consequences of their foolishness, they may decide to amend their ways (Luke 15:11-24).
Note the word “may.” Some are so stubborn that no matter how much misery they bring on themselves, they stay right where they are (Jeremiah 5:3). How sad!
So what’s your learning style?
