"Experience is a good teacher, but her fees are very high."--W.R. Inge
I can be a stubborn person. It frequently takes me years to learn a lesson. One would think that a reasonably intelligent person (which I am most of the time) could learn from experience. But, no, I have to learn the same lesson over and over (and over).
What a sad commentary. Try as I will to "get it," the Lord has to put me in positions to learn what He wants me to know.
Joy for today: getting it the first time. (Or the second, third, fourth, or fifth.)
