We learn from our experiences and by reading about the experiences of others.  Many times, learning from our own experiences is a slow and difficult process as we are most stubborn with ourselves.  Reading and learning from the experiences of others gives us new insight into how can we live going forward.  God provides the greatest book filled with lessons and learnings, to help us as we live.  Pick up a bible and learn from the experiences of those who came before us.  Amen.

“The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:

for gaining wisdom and instruction;
    for understanding words of insight;
for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
    doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a]
    knowledge and discretion to the young—
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
    and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
    the sayings and riddles of the wise.[b]

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
    but fools[c] despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 1:1-7
