“The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”–Eden Phillpotts
Life is interesting, and it’s full of interesting things: facts, theories, ideas, tools, music, dirt, beauty. We can all use some of it, real life. We can all enjoy the benefits, reap the rewards and learn from the mistakes. What we have learned, the experiences we have experienced, all work together to shape both who we are now and what our future will hold.
What are you learning? What kind of people do you surround yourself with? What are you putting into that amazing framework of nerves called your brain? And is it helping or hurting your soul? It’s important to know these things, because we can so easily be deceived into patterns of worthlessness. You stop thinking for a minute, and then it’s four years later, and you’ve accomplished nothing. I strongly believe we’re all here for a good reason; are you, right now, becoming the man you were created to be?
If you are a Christian, how much time do you spend in prayer each day? How often do you read the Bible? Do you let the Holy Spirit teach you? God is the greatest teacher in the history of the universe. If we’re not learning from Him, then what is the point of anything else? I need great relationships, books, tools and knowledge, but without God, I am nothing.
“I have more understanding than all my teachers,
for your testimonies are my meditation.”–Psalm 119:99
