Doctrine and Covenants 109:14-15

"And do thou grant, Holy Father, that all those who shall worship in this house may be taught words of wisdom out of the best books, and that they may seek learning even by study, and also by faith, as thou hast said;
And that they may grow up in thee, and receive a fulness of the Holy Ghost, and be organized according to thy laws, and be prepared to obtain every needful thing."
Doctrine and Covenants 109:14-15

I think it is cool that God wants us to learn.  He doesn't gain our devotion by keeping us in the dark or by making sure that we don't find out the truth. :)  He wants us to walk in the light, and find all the truth, because he knows that it will bring us closer to him.  He has nothing to hide or to be afraid of. :)  Also... in the second verse, can you imagine what "a fulness of the Holy Ghost" would offer?  We know that the Holy Ghost helps us to remember things and identifies truth when we come across it... if we had a fulness of the Holy Ghost, would we know all truth and have perfect memories? :)  Interesting as well that we have to be prepared to obtain every needful thing... I think that there are some things that God wants to give us that would overwhelm us or confuse us now, but as we learn more and more, we will be more and more ready to receive those gifts. :)  Sounds like a really good reason to continue to learn. :)
