Tony Compolo is one of my favorite speakers, authors, and spiritual coaches. Tony has energized me to think creatively more than once. If you can pick up one of his books, lectures, sermons, or blogs – do it. One of his books with the title of this blog reminds me that as Sunday draws to a close I’m already thinking about what the messages for the week will be on my blog, the classes I teach mid-week (podcast at www.blc24seven.com), and the teaching for next Sunday. Our weeks often unfold at a rapid pace. Life long learning is a privilege that we should all take advantage of daily. Proverbs 1:5 says, “Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.” It is our disadvantage if we overlook one of the great free self improvement activities available to us – learning. Wisdom is so valuable and in this “Age of Information” it has become even more precious – even more than the price of oil, gold, or gems. Henry Ford was quick to point out to a business associate, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young” – and who doesn’t want to feel young?
Make it a point to learn something each day this week.
