Ready to Learn

With all our little ones I've found this to be true, whether it's learning to count, or potty training.  In most cases, relaxing, and waiting until they are ready is always so much easier.  Every single child is unique and learns at different rates.  They will get it, it just might not be exactly like the neighbours two year old who is already reading at a third grade level! ;)

Be Ye Doers of the Word

The man who hears Christian teaching, and never gets beyond hearing, is like “a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:" (Matt. 7:26). He satisfies himself with listening and approving, but he goes no further. 

He flatters himself, perhaps, that all is right with his soul, because he has feelings, convictions, and desires, of a spiritual kind. In these he rests. He never really breaks off from sin, and casts aside the spirit of the world. He never really lays hold of Christ. He never really takes up the cross. He is a hearer of truth, but nothing more. ~ J.C. Ryle

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22
