Proverbs 3: 13-20

Today's passage lists blessings that can be found for the person who finds wisdom. Remember, we talked about this in our introduction to Proverbs. Proverbs is just that. A proverb not a promise. These verses contain principles to help us in our everyday lives.

Read Proverbs 3:13-20.

I don't have much to discuss today. So, let's talk about how we learn.

If you are an artsy type journal person, I can see several ideas for drawing out what you learned today.I am not a journal person. And I cannot draw. At all.

I do learn best by writing it out, then going over and over it. I like to write out my verse of the day; memory verses, etc. How do you best learn?

I am your artsy type person, and I love the visual picture drawn in these verses, but that is not how I learn scripture. I would remember the drawing but not what the scripture said. So, I have to write it out over and over, and read it repeatedly. And I have to focus on the task of memorizing, otherwise I just don't remember the biggest part of it, and certainly the reference. (It may just be part of growing old-er.)

I do learn precepts by discussing them with others. Sometimes reading them leaves me quickly, but if I discuss them with others, I am more likely to retain them. I bet my Sunday School class wishes I would just be quiet sometimes. Being alone or with a toddler all day every day tends to make me a chatterbox when I get around adults, and I "discuss" a lot. ;)

Repetition is the way I learn, I love that Christian artist put scripture verses in some of their songs, it helps me remember them better. I too enjoy discussing scripture not only to help me remember but sometimes to understand what other get from the same verse. I truly love that about God's word one verse can speak to each of us differently!

Belinda I understand about the adult conversation...I have a daycare and all the children are 8 and under and I am in the children's area during SS too. I started a mom's group when my son was young, once he went to school so did all his little friends. So I had to find another when my daughter was born. We try to get together once a month to let the kids play and the moms some adult conversation!

Jennifer that is awesome that you have such networks - its so important for you as a Mum and a women to connect with others. Tonya I kind of fall in all areas - my husband calls me the SPONGE. But action is how I learn the best - by doing and reliving it through scriptures.


Tonya said...

LOL, I am really bad about not shutting up around adults either. My poor husband is out of town this week. When he gets home I am liable to keep him up all night jabbering his ear off.

I find that I do not memorize as good as I used to. It has never been my strong point. I have to work very hard at it. Seth's Bible quizzing helps me more than anything! I can't wait to start that again. I learn right along with him.

I am with JuneBug, Milta and SnowPea, I learn by doing. If I say the verse outloud it helps, but I have learned verses if it was an assignment and I did that by word association. I too am a "sponge".
