Unteachable

“I try to read the Bible with my wife. But if we try to talk about it afterward, it seems like she is always arguing with me. She does go to Bible study and knows a lot, so that just makes me want to keep my mouth shut.”

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I’m afraid that some of the most biblically knowledgeable women in the church can also be the most intimidating. We’re blessed to have so many Bible study opportunities for women. But if our knowledge makes us unteachable or difficult to live with, we’re missing the point.

I think some men feel like they need to go to seminary and get an advanced theological degree to be the kind of spiritual leaders their wives say they want. My guess is that these wives may not have a teachable, humble spirit.

For sure, take every opportunity you have to learn God’s Word. But remember what the apostle Paul said: “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies” (1 Cor. 8:1).

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
