There's Always More

     Have you ever felt like there's nothing much more you can possibly learn? That's usually right before you learn something new, and realize that you know practically nothing. That's probably why school lasts so long... Anyway, Sometimes as Christians it can be easy to get comfortable with the fact that we're Christians, and we go to church and listen to the lesson, and we agree with everything that's said but we don't realize that it applies to us. Or we can be singing, "love one another", fully aware and in agreeance with what we're singing, but then go home and talk nonstop about things that happened to us almost a year ago, that we really should have stopped thinking about by now. This can be very easy to do. And I'm not saying that everyone does this, but it can be very easy to kind of fall into a rut and not even realize it.

     What do we do when this happens? Okay, so I was on Pinterest once, and I thought, "I don't think that there is anything on here worth repinning." But then I went to the geek section. I think I was on for another 5 hours or so. This is what learning is like. If you start getting discouraged, or you realize that you haven't been learning anything, just read a passage in the Bible at random that you haven't read in a long time. It can be very easy to forget that just because we're Christians, that doesn't mean that the journey is over. That ends when we die. Not when we graduate, or when we become old, or when we just get bored. God intended for us to follow Him until we die. That's why the Bible is so big. There is literally no end to what we can learn from the Bible. In fact, when most people die, even the most diligent Bible students probably have only learned a fraction of what can be learned from the Bible. Why? Because there's always more to learn. So remember, when you feel like you've studied everything, you haven't studied near enough. :)
