We all learn differently.

We all learn differently.
.
The last two days, I watched about twenty law enforcement officers learn how to shoot out of a new optic. It was entertaining to say the least. Some were able to catch on and some really struggled.
.
Fortunately, I was able to pick it up really quick. That’s usually not the case for me, but I am going to take the break and be happy about my performance.
.
I honestly have no idea why it was easier for me and difficult for others. It just made sense in my mind and it worked.
.
I often feel the Gospel can be that way for members and non-members. It can be stressful when others seem to have a clearer understanding.
.
We all learn differently. The concept of the optic was the same for everyone, but not everyone was able to understand and execute it the same way as others. It didn’t mean they were less of a shooter than anyone else; it was different and uncomfortable.
.
There are parts of the Gospel that make some uncomfortable. It doesn’t mean it’s wrong or false doctrine; it means the learner needs to keep trying and applying the concepts.
.
If you have to start over, then start over. Sometimes that’s the only way to fix bad habits and get rid of the stress due to too much information at one time.
.
I wouldn’t expect my children to understand scriptures the same as me. I’ve been doing it longer and have a better understanding of how to utilize them.
.
We need to have patience for those who may not understand the Gospel to the same degree as other members. Be kind to them when they make a comment that doesn’t match up to the lesson. Thank them for saying an opening or closing prayer but may not have used familiar verbiage.
.
Remember, everyone is trying, everyone is uncomfortable, and everyone is learning at their own pace. The Lord loves us all the same!
.
He will open our minds when He is ready for us to learn His concepts. Have faith in Him and His timing—Don’t get frustrated.
.
Hear Him!
