Never stop learning (1)

3 January 2024 ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your…mind.’ Mark 12:30 NKJV

God has created us with the capacity to keep learning for the whole of our lives, which is something we shouldn’t take for granted. The average brain weighs approximately three pounds, but neurologists estimate that we have the ability to learn something new every second of every minute of every hour of every day for the next three hundred million years. Isn’t that amazing! But it’s more than that. It’s an awesome obligation. Learning isn’t an indulgence; it’s a stewardship matter. Jesus said, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ It’s impossible to calculate the percentage of our minds that we use, but all of us have untapped potential. Your imagination is capable of so much more than you can dream.But somewhere along the way, most of us stop living out of imagination and start living out of memory. We stop designing the future and start copying the past. And that’s the day we stop living life to its fullest, because at that point we stop educating ourselves. Loving God with all your mind takes stretching your mind, by learning as much as possible about as much as possible. The real test of spiritual maturity isn’t how much you know. It’s realising there’s plenty that you don’t know. It’s reconciling yourself with the reality that we might not always understand God, but He’s always a source of wonder. And that sacred sense of wonder sparks a curiosity to keep learning more about the Creator and His creation.
