Proverbs 9:9, “Give instructions to a wise man, and he will be still wiser, teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.”
“Ask the right people, the right questions, to get the right answers.”
The right THEY, the friends you want orbiting your life, are teachable. They are incurable learners who exemplify the A.S.K. principle – Always Seeking Knowledge. They take advantage of every opportunity to learn.
By contrast, unteachable people often think they know all they need to know. They think they are wise, but the Bible actually calls them “fools.” And, they will surround themselves with fools.
Let’s flip the script. Are you a teachable friend? Is your life characterized by an insatiable desire to learn? The key to being an incurable learner is not just asking questions, but asking the right people, the right questions. Who do you seek counsel from? Are they aligned with God and his word? If you want to attract friends who are incurable learners, you need to be one, as well.
Be the person that is known for being an incurable learner – always seeking knowledge!
A great place to get wisdom is Pastor Ed’s book, Fifty Shades of THEY. If you don’t already have a copy, get it today on Amazon and start reading. As you are reading, highlight sections that stand out to you and make notes in the margins of thoughts that come to mind.
God, help me to be that wise individual who is always looking for opportunities to learn. Please show me where I am not teachable. Help me to be that friend who is always seeking knowledge. Amen.
