Tuesday Tip #13 – Cup of Knowledge

Category: Life skills

Think about the amount of knowledge you possess as a cup. You can fill your cup by learning new things. And you can increase the size of your cup by the variety of learning styles you employ.

A sampling of learning styles: audio, visual, tactile, memorization, through music, through visual arts, through performing arts, through nature, discussions, debates, new ideas, old ideas, spiritual ideas, mathematical and scientific ideas, literary and philosophic ideas, historical and visionary ideas,from teachers who are older, from teacher who are younger, from teachers of a different culture, standing up, sitting down, and walking around.

Personal example: If you asked us twelve years ago where we were going as missionaries we would have told you “without a doubt” one of the following: India or Africa. Looking back on that time I can see now that we thought that because it was all we ever knew. As we increased our cup of knowledge we were able to make a clearer decision about where to serve.

Bonus: If you are a Christian I would challenge you with this thought. God is able to lead you depending on the size and contents of your cup of knowledge.

  1. Good tip – I love learning, and understand (at least in some measure) the power of it. If I did what was in my heart, I would learn on a scale that is 4 -5 times what I currently do. :]

  2. I came across your blog from The Mother Letters Project blog. I know this is silly…but my daughter is in the Leelou Blogs cute baby photo contest and I am trying to spread the word for people to vote for her!! I need HUNDREDS of votes for her to even come close to catching up to the front-runners. I have been trying to figure out where to find hundreds of people, and I didn’t think it was approriate to ask Seth to post something so silly on The Mother Letters Blog (obviously), but I figured maybe all the people who helped with the project would be willing to go give my little Makenzie from AZ a vote : ) If not, that’s ok too. I am just trying to get creative and reach more people! If you’d like to help me by voting for Makenzie, please go to http://www.leeloublogs.blogspot.com/ and spread the word for others to vote as well : ) Thanks for your time!!

    PS- THE MOTHER LETTERS PROJECT is in NO WAY associated with this request other than the fact that I found your blog there!!
