When I started wearing bi-focals I had a slow learning curve. I repeatedly rammed my head on a low hanging garage door until I had a permanent lump that had to be removed surgically. Really. I know what it is to be a slow learner.
Some things cannot be removed surgically. Some lessons we refuse to learn can keep us poor and “oppressed”.
(Proverbs 13:18 KJV) Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.People mired in poverty tend to keep doing the same things. They do not learn from experience and failure. How many babies does a woman with no husband need to have before she realizes where they come from? How many days does a student need to sit doing nothing before admitting that failure is coming down the tracks? How many times do you need to raise the minimum wage before you see that it means fewer jobs?
There are many causes of poverty. Refusing to observe and learn will keep traps strong and healthy.
To be continued...eventually.
