ELEMENTS OF LEARNING
LISTEN: Listen carefully to what is being said, ask the person to repeat it, repeat what you heard to make sure what you think you heard is really what was said, also when you write it down it makes it easier to retain.
LEARN: Learn to research what is said, if you find it is true add it to your standard of life, if not disgard it.
THINK: Think and consider how the new knowledge can be used for God and in your everyday life.
SPEAK: Speak by submitting to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Speak what you have learned with humble confidence realizing God led you to the knowledge you gained and He gave you the ability to retain it. When you are ready, He will provide the platform for you to use it. Always remember, it is for His Glory not yours.
