You learn something every day you pay attention. (Ray LeBlond, author and communicator)

It is often said that you learn something new every day. But LeBlond is probably more accurate; you learn only if you’re paying attention. Any student recognizes that truth. We have all sat in classes, heard lectures, read assignments, and gone away having learned little or nothing. Why? Because we weren’t really paying attention. We have to be alert to learn.

Be alert and of sober mind. (1 Peter 4:7-8).
