Learning is humbling. When I learn something new, it isn’t just something meant to build me up. What it should also do is remind me how much I don’t know yet and how much I have to learn.
It’s kinda like sin; when we sin… sure, it will bring us down because we’re feel guilt and shame for slipping up. But the more we sin, and the more we confess, the more thankful we are to God for His forgiveness. It’s like realizing more and more how amazing the gift of forgiveness is each and every time we turn our backs on Him who created us.
So, just like that, I want to focus on learning this year. Everything from optometry, relationships, theology, maturing, the church, everything. I want this to be a year focused on learning and growing. I believe it will begin with humility and realizing the extent of my own sin, that I need God, and even moreso, that I want him. And I’ll only really want him if I realize how far short I fall of the cross.
