31 days: lesson 5, be teachable

I suppose this should have been the very first post.  One of the greatest and most important lessons I have ever learned is that I need to be teachable and moldable.  Humility while learning is even more important.  Knowledge without humility is nothing more than pride and arrogance.  And those two things lead to thinking you are better than other people…which is bad too.

Proverbs 16:19
Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Proverbs 9:9
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

Matthew 11:29
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Philippians 4:9
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

That’s it.  Nothing long or complicated.  Just be humble and teachable, using what you know for good.  Given yesterday’s post I think you know where and whom to learn from :)
