In his book, The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth, M. Scott Peck wrote, “The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning.” In the same way Mahatma Gandhi encourages us to “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Though life itself is a learning experience, it’s easy for the routines and schedules of daily life to squeeze out intentional learning opportunities whether they be Bible Study, taking an online course or reading a book about personal growth. As we grow older the tendency is to put aside studying and learning, thinking that “we’ve been there, done that.” We have been through the educational system, finished our careers so now we can put aside book, paper and pen.
