UniQue Week 3 – Grow Uniquely

Well hello again. So, did your assessment of your personality type prove true this past week? If you were like me, you probably found that there were elements from each of the groups that you could relate to quite strongly and some others that you were easily able to completely eliminate from ever possibly being one of your personality traits.

Week 3 Lesson:

Scripture:  John 7:37-38

On the last and greatest day of the Festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

~ John 7:37-38 (TNIV)

Discover:

The whole purpose of this week’s lesson is to discover your own unique learning style so that you can grow uniquely. Luckily, there are many brilliant people who have provided and done all of the research that we need in order to discover and identify what our learning style is. There are seven basic learning styles: visual, auditory, tactical, oral, social, logical and imaginative.

As you can see by the Name of each of the styles, The learner possessing the style will best be able to learn using that method. For example, visual learners will learn best by seeing. Auditory learners will learn best by hearing. Tactical learners learn best by doing. Oral learners learn best by talking aloud or discussing. Social learners learn best working in groups. Logical learners learn best using a linear process. Imaginative learners learn best through art story and imagery.

Going Deeper:

  1. In which environments do you tend to learn the most in?
  2. Read Psalm 42:1-4.
    1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.
    2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
    3 My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
    4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.
  3. Do these verses describe your desire to connect with God? If not, have there been times when it did? Can you recall those times? What were you doing?
  4. How much does the way we are wired to learn affect our desire to connect with God?
