Proverbs 4:13 (NKJV) — 13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.
Instruction is life. Some people develop such a distaste for instruction that they cannot wait to stop learning. But instruction is life! Life is a great learning process, a vast school. The person who stops learning will be frustrated and thwarted, with a sense of aimlessness and purposelessness.
