Teachable? – Part 8
Whether we would like to admit it or not we all have areas of our life where we have a wrong understanding. Our minds must be transformed but in order for that to happen, we must be pliable in the potter’s hands. In this series, we are going to look at what the Scripture teaches about having a teachable or humble heart.
Teachable: Is a person who is capable of being taught. It is a person who apt and willing to learn.
The Christian that is un-teachable has declared that they are walking in the fullness of the stature of Christ.
This series is designed to get us searching our hearts and minds for areas where we need to repent. In addition, when this takes place and we allow correction to come and respond to that correction with obedience we will see our relationship and faith with and in the Lord go to another level.
Part 8 – Prov 9:8 – Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you. 9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. 10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 11 For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. NKJV
Prov 29:1 – He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck, Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. NKJV
The Lord has placed within His Word keys to living abundantly! Being teachable as we see from proverbs can lengthen our life here on earth. We also see that if we harden ourselves to correction and instruction we can cause serious damage to our lives, even to the point that there is no remedy. Let’s remain teachable and grow and spare our lives unnecessary trouble and destruction.
