The Lesson before the Test

I realize that often times I like to skip to the test in hopes that I pass regardless of whether I’ve actually learned a lesson or not. Testing has a purpose. A test is designed to test your knowledge and to evaluate how well you understand and can apply what you have learned.

This morning I had to take an annual course that gives you the option to skip the lessons and take the test. Honestly, this is usually the option I take. Why? It takes less time and I feel like I know the material. Well, I mistakenly hit the wrong button and had to take the whole course again before I could take the final evaluation. This got me thinking…

How many times do we try to skip ahead and pass the tests of life but haven’t effectively learned our lesson. We are missing out on the wealth of knowledge that the “University of Life” is trying to teach us because:

  • We are in a hurry and are rushing to our next step
  • We think we know it all already
  • We forget things, people, and seasons are constantly changing

It make take extra time but make sure that you are learning the lessons life is trying to teach you. Yes I know it seems you always pass the test but how well have you really mastered what you were supposed to learn!
