Education as Spiritual Discipline
Learning can be a spiritual discipline. Discovering new information, facts and understandings can open our souls to new things about our spiritual life and about God.
We practice being receptive and aware when we learn. We practice changing and challenging our own thinking and traditions when we learn. We engage with others when we learn. We learn not to judge but to identify our core beliefs.
Get wisdom; get understanding.
Don’t forget and don’t turn away from my words.
Don’t abandon her, and she will guard you.
Love her, and she will protect you. Proverbs 4:5-6 CEB
