Happy Monday. “Keep on learning, don’t ever know.” –Dr. Jack Hyles
This week is the anniversary of my marriage to a man who lived life every day. He was always studying and learning from daily happenings.
Someone has said, “He was interesting because he was interested.”
I don’t know of a time in our fifty plus years when he was bored. He was aware, conscious of life around him.
Never did he feel he had arrived. His words were, “when you get to the top, raise the top and climb some more.”
All kinds of people were his teachers, big people, little people, though to his mind they were all big.
He was a student of all kinds of things, especially what he knew I enjoyed. He learned gardening, good music, art, opera, even shopping (he liked it!)
Could it be that the youth of today are bored with life before they have lived? Dabbling with things harmful, looking for a thrill?
A Canadian educator said, “The man who has ceased to learn ought not to be allowed to wander around loose in these dangerous days.”
Staying alert, always learning from people and circumstances is to really live life every day.
My husband studied mainly to show himself approved of God. He wanted always to “rightly divide the word of truth.” Thus, his bread, served in his messages, was always fresh and satisfying.
No, he didn’t miss life.
Will that be said of us?
