You are Never Too _______ to Learn
 
Everything written long ago was written to teach us so that we would have confidence through the endurance and encouragement which the Scriptures give us.  Romans 15:4
 
I left that blank because people have all sorts of excuses about learning new things.  I have long believed that you should learn something everyday. You can learn something from anyone if you are willing to try.  Don't rule someone out because they are young; don't ignore someone because they seem incompetent or don't live as well as you do. 
 
For example, I find it so interesting that children regardless of their age love unconditionally.  You could have the world's worst mother but still love her in spite.  What I learned from it is that this illustrates the agape love–regardless, no matter what you do kind of love that God has for us. 
 
You have to allow yourself to be fertile enough to let someone plant seeds in your mind and heart–now, don't take that to mean let anything someone says be taken as a lesson–that's where discernment and wisdom come in.  Actually, you need both of those in order to know what to listen to in the first place. "But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ." 1 John 2:27  Yield to the Holy Spirit and learn something and share it!
 
"Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning."  Proverbs 9:9
