You learn about God in the same way that you learn about anything else.
By studying, of course. But also by doing.
Repetition, repetition, repetition.
See, I think that you get more loving by practicing love. Patience comes easier the more you exhibit patience. And self-control is a muscle that must be exercised too.
Truth be told, both the study and the practice of learning are hard to turn into daily habits. But what is the alternative?
Nothing worth doing is easy, if you ask me.
Remember: Nearly everything is practice.
Certainly, God wants us to learn about Him by reading the letters and stories collected in the Bible, but He also wants us to meet Him by loving the people who are difficult to get along with. If I’m only willing to love the people who are nice to me, the ones who see things the way I do, and avoid all the rest, it’s like reading every other page of the Bible and thinking I know what it says.
