Daniel 1:17

"As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams."
Daniel 1:17

So much of the gospel is the basics, or sometimes remedial classes, which we need.  It is a challenge to get down the foundation... faith, repentance, baptism, etc.  But I really love it when we get hints of the advanced classes... the blessings that can come if you have a foundational understanding and can build upon it a little.  Learning and Wisdom and Visions and Dreams... not as advanced as Walking on Water, Parting the Sea, or Moving a Mountain, but maybe a little higher than Coming to Church Consistently, Prayer, or Reading Our Scriptures.
... Wouldn't it be cool to be blessed with the knowledge of how to interpret visions and dreams?  Or to be blessed with insight as we are studying?  Things would click faster, and we would understand how to apply things in our lives a little bit more?  And I think this is just small stuff when it comes to God.  He wants to bless us with things like this.  He wants to help us grow and become so much more than we are.  Today, let's nail the foundational stuff... and if we can do that consistently, then let's talk to God about the next step for us.  Maybe it will be something cool like this.  Learning how to interpret dreams, or expanding our learning or wisdom with God's help... and even if it isn't exactly like this, it is sure to be cool.  Life with God is never, ever boring. :)
