Many people stop growing mentally and spiritually at an early age. Physically, they continue to develop, but spiritually they remain as six-year-olds. Yet most of us do recognize that we have a lot to learn.
Give instruction to the wise, and they will become wiser still. (Proverbs 9:9)
Holy Spirit, inspire me to learn about the people and places
that surround me—and about You as well.
