Five Minute Friday (on Saturday): Learn

I am joining Kate Motaung and a group of courageous writers (on Saturday) for Five Minute Friday. The prompt is “Learn.” To learn more about Five Minute Friday (and perhaps join us?) click here.

The phrase, “Learn of Me,” was the first thing that came to mind in response to the prompt, “Learn.”  I thought of this instruction from the Teacher, “Learn of Me,” and I thought of the promise, “The people who know their God will be strong.” He cannot be fully known, but the more I learn of Him the more intimately I will know Him and be transformed into His image, which Romans 8:29 tells us has been His plan all along.

The phrase “Learn of Me,” is found in Matthew 11:29, and it is also translated, “Learn from Me.” There is no end to what we can learn from our Teacher. He is wisdom itself and He is all knowing. Oh, yes, we should desire fervently to learn of Him and learn from Him.  How great it is that the same promise holds when we learn of Him and learn from Him, “We will find rest for our souls.”  There is none of us who have not felt bone crushing weariness at some point in our lives.  Let us accept His invitation immediately.

  1. I love seeing how others take the same word and spin it totally differently. Your post reminded me of my dad who was a teacher and I have connected with some of his former students who still remember the influence he had on their lives. Many of them went into education and teaching because of him. It’s amazing how much one can learn from others.
