Isaiah 48:17. Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.

As we age we tend to become less teachable. We sit in church but we are to “spiritual” or wise to take notes on the sermon. We already studied many of the books of the Bible, we know all we need to know about them. We are too mature to be part of a Bible study group or Sunday School class. We half listen when someone else shares an interpretation of a scripture verse. We think if God wants to teach us anything else He will do it directly. God used many different vessels to teach us. He uses the scriptures, other people (including the old and the very young), nature, circumstances and anything else He might choose. Our question is are we teachable? Do we want to acknowledge we don’t know and are still in need of much learning? Let us actively open our minds, ears, eyes and hearts to all God has to teach us through any and e Rey implement He chooses.
