Years ago, I read Robert Fulghum’s book, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” It was based on a simple idea: we learn many basic principles early in life. For example … play fair, don’t hit people, remember to flush when you’re finished.
Well, at least most people learned this stuff by kindergarten!
I have people ask me all the time, “Ken, when will I get this Jesus-stuff all figured out?” Why do they ask? Because, to them, it seems like it’s taking a long time. These are smart people — book smart, street smart. They’ve raised children and started businesses.
Their frustration isn’t the result of a lack of intelligence or desire.
But following Jesus isn’t the same as earning your college degree. It’s not a matter of signing up for class, passing your test, and graduating four years spiritually mature and just like Jesus.
While you can buy study guides about following Jesus, ultimately the process of becoming more like Jesus is a spiritual process.
And here’s a key point to remember: learning a spiritual process requires spiritual assistance.
