Prophet lessons, 101: Learning and the class

You learn by doing.
You learn by failing.
You learn by trying it out.
You learn by walking.
You learn by observing.
You learn by listening.
You learn by observing again.
The class is life.
The lessons are hardship.
The grade is love –
How much love are you using?
How much love are you birthing?
What are your seeds?
