Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action. (Benjamin Disraeli, 19th century British prime minister)
Have you ever been tempted to put off any action until you have thought it through thoroughly and, maybe, had some experience in the planned activity? Many have discovered, however, that they have learned best by becoming involved in activity, experiencing life, and gaining an ability to think more clearly as they take action.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice (Philippians 4:9).
