A Teachable Spirit
Girl: Bye, Mom. I’m going over to Betsy’s.
Woman: My fourteen-year-old is so smart. She’s so smart she’s failing school! But that might be because she won’t pay attention to her teachers because she thinks she’s smarter than them.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: The first step to learning is admitting that we don’t know everything.
Woman: Oh yeah—she’s got it all figured out.
Nancy: Do you know that we can have that kind of attitude to the Word of God? Psalm 25 explains the kind of mindset that lets us learn from God. It says, “He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way” (v. 9).
What kind of person does the Lord teach? People who realize how much they need to learn.
Here’s an exercise. Make a list of the subjects you don’t know anything about. Then think about the infinite wisdom of God, who knows everything. That kind of thinking will change the way you approach God’s Word.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
