Here is one more characteristic: the great learner expects resistance and overcomes it. You remember from your early school days reading about the number of materials Thomas Edison tried in his search for a filament for an electric light bulb. The persistence he needed to work through failure after failure was an application of the rule of learning, not an exception to it.

...You and I will face difficulty in our studies and in our lives, and we expect it because of what we know about who God is and that we are his children, what his hopes are for us, and how much he loves us. He will give us no test without preparing the way for us to pass it. Because of what we know about adversity in learning, in this community of Saints we pay special honor to determined learners because we know the price that they gladly pay. And we know from whence their power to persist through difficulty comes.

In this community we know that we are the brothers and sisters of Job, of Joseph in Egypt, of Joseph in Carthage Jail, and of Jesus in Gethsemane and on Golgotha's hill. So we are not surprised when sorrows come. We respect their place and know their potential.

When did We the People ever vote to be ruled? Controlled? Herded? Has this nation come full circle, only to be ruled by another King George? But much has changed since 1776 and American guts and glory may already have been spent. America won its independence from King George (the one on the other side of the ocean) when local leaders joined the citizenry to form militias and fight for freedom. How can America possibly be taken, again, from King George (the one on this side of the ocean)? We are not to form local militias and our neighbors in uniform are all the king's men who have been blinded until they no longer recognize a royal imposter; an unconstitutional acting one, at that.
