John 7:15 And the Jews marvelled saying,

How knoweth this man letters,’having never learned?

Phil. 4:9 Those things which ye have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, DO: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Phil. 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Heb. 5:8 Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered...

One year when I was teaching school in Lee County, Virginia, the last day of school, I had the 6th grade class write whatever they wanted to tell me.

One girl started her paper,

"Mr. Hughes you learned me a lot this year."

Well, it appears I didn’t do to well in the English


No one can learn for you, you learn for yourself.

Others teach you.

I ponder, What am I learning? What am I teaching?

I am afraid all I needed to know, I never learned in kindergarten.

I have been to the school of hard knocks,

and I carry many scars from slow learning

and ears slow to hear.

But I have learned a few things. Please ponder these...

What have you learned?

What are you teaching?

I have learned---

that at best life is just temporary.

We pass this way but once.

It is easy to think we have forever.

60% of people have no will,

we live like there will be a tomorrow.

One of these days there will be no tomorrow.

We head toward death at 1440 minutes per day.

To die right, we need to live right.

I have learned---

that nothing is as bad as it first appears.

Walk away from it.

Get a good night’s sleep,

things will look different in the morning.

Haste has caused many tears and suicides.

I have learned---

if you don’t like what you are getting,

change what you are giving.

I have learned--- words can murder.

Ever read this...

I crucified a soul today.

I murdered it with my words.

You see, void now is one testimony.

My tongue did nail to a tree.

I have learned---

that the people that need your love

the most deserve it the least.

Invest love for tomorrow’s sake.

I have learned---

if you don’t like where you are,

you probably won’t like where you are going!

Contentment is a learned behavior,

few discipline their eyes or heart.

I have learned--- life is like a big puzzle.

God gives you only one piece at a time.

God does not always give you a picture of

what the puzzle is going to look like.

The picture develops as you travel the journey.

I have learned---

that blaming others is stupid,

you can’t change others.

But you can change yourself,

if you want to...

I have learned---

the fear of God and His commandments is the source

of real living.

We live in a society that paints the God of LOVE

so large, that God’s LOVE is abused.

Remember you will be held accountable.

Judgment Day is sure.

I have learned--- "THEY SAID" is a mean hearted phrase that hides the jellyfish mentality of cruel people. If you can’t say who said it, then don’t repeat it.

I have learned---

that water takes the path of least resistance and

failure takes the path of least persistence.
