Don’t expect God to do a miracle in upgrading the content of your mind. He has left that task up to you. (Robert A. Cook, college educator)

Sometimes we seem to be pretty lazy about learning. When we were younger, we might have wished that our teachers could just open our brains and pour in what we needed to know. Of course, it doesn’t work that way. Learning is often hard work, so we have to apply ourselves to diligent and careful study.

I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 1:13).
