Expanding Skills To Succeed

In summary of Ecclesiastes 10:10 it says, “The duller the ax the harder the work; Use your head: The more brains, the less muscle.”

Bottom Line:
Use your head, take time to sharpen the ax, a little brain power will bring success.

What this means to me:
If I am to succeed in life, I cannot stop learning.  The minute I stop learning my contribution to the world around me stops.  Keeping my brain non-exercised with more knowledge/wisdom only wastes time.  I can keep learning by reading books, listening to a seminar or message on audio, continue to take classes and take notes while listening to the sermon at church.  God will use these things to expand my horizons.  As it is explained in Proverbs 19:8, “Do yourself a favor and learn all you can; then remember what you learn and you will prosper.”  A real solution to problems I might encounter is to continue training and learn all I can.  This year I will make it a priority to learn all I can and remember what I learn.  I know God will bless me through this in what I do.
