Being Well Rounded

I once had a professor explain the important principle of variety to my class like this: “Can you imagine only ever eating just American food? You get to experience root beer floats, hotdogs, apple pies, barbecue ribs, grits, green bean casserole, and the like. Now, that would be good for a time. A lot of that food is very tasty. But you would be missing out on SO MUCH! If your taste buds, your pallet, never had the opportunity to try an Italian cannoli, a Thai chicken crepe, or a bold taste of curry and flatbread, what a tragedy that would be! God made our taste buds to be able to experience and enjoy so many different things. There are so many delicious foods out there, and they all taste so differently! We need to try Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, Indian, Greek, Irish, and English dishes. You don’t know what you’re missing”. The same is said in music, you can’t just listen to one kind! You will miss out on so much beauty! Please realize that the same goes for our minds. If we are just educated in one area, how foolish we are! God has made our minds so incredibly complex! We have the ability very early on in life, and throughout our years to understand a vast array of subjects.  He encourages us to read all sorts of biographies, stay up to date on current events! Let’s do it!

I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts on this!
