Growth...


...be sure to make mistakes, make a lot of them, because there's no better way to learn and grow...

Ha - growing from them is one thing - but not sure I ever learn from them - keep on making the same "mistakes(?)" time and time again. am very thankful for moments of GRACE!

Surely growing and learning are synonymous? Or perhaps you are simply choosing to ignore the lesson?

Its funny the things we know and believe yet don't do.

Totally agree with the grace comment ;-)

i think it has somethiing to do with what that fella St. Paul said....spirit being willing, flesh weak...and why do i do what i do when i know i shouldn't speech. So, whilst i do think we sometimes make the choice of mistake again and again, at the end of the day as Rich mullins used to say...the reason temptation is so attractive is, well, because it's...tempting....which is why i take grace over karma everyday of the week and twice on sunday's

The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him - John Milton

the end of knowing...that scares me, does that mean there will be a time where we cease to learn?

I'm not sure, although I seem to recall some teaching that implied that those who didn't learn all they needed on earth would continue to learn in heaven until they knew what they needed to, thus I suppose there must come a point in heaven where we cease to learn.
Maybe we just cease to learn because we have learned.

one of those mystical unanswered questions that will need no answer on the other side....maybe?
