“Be Teachable”

Last week we started a new sermon series we’re calling “Wisdom or Wis-Dumb.”  We believe God wants to use this series to teach us how to live more biblically-informed lives.

“Wisdom” refers to logic that corresponds with God’s Word while “wis-dumb” refers to logic that conflicts with God’s Word.

Wisdom doesn’t come by accident; it requires intention, diligence, and desire. Ultimately, wisdom is something we become as God wants us to BE wise so that no matter what we face in life we will act wisely in response to it.

Sunday’s message, “Be Teachable,” will come from Proverbs 9:7-12.  The primary thrust of this passage is simple.  It teaches us that there are two kinds of people in this world – the teachable and the unteachable.

It also underscores the fact that the final destinations of these two types of people are drastically different.  The final destination of the teachable is benefit and blessing.  Conversely, the final destination of the unteachable is suffering and heartache.

I do hope you’ll take the time to prayerfully consider Proverbs 9:7-12 before Sunday and that you’ll take to heart this simple question – Would God number me among the teachable or the unteachable?

Still learning,

pastor jamie
