What is More Important to You, Being Right or Being Teachable

Child, your interpretation of what I’m saying isn’t always literal. However, if you keep your heart seeking after Me, open to correction as you have, you shall grow and know. Fear Not. Always being right isn’t as important as being teachable, learning from miscues and slip ups. Selah. I truly love you. You do delight Me.

We all know those people who always have to be right. I don’t mean making right and good choices but that their opinion, information, thoughts and what they share is correct and no one else is unless they agree with that person’s ways, thoughts or ideas. Many of us find it OK to be “wrong” and admit it when we are. The world would be mighty narrow and predictable if we couldn’t/wouldn’t keep on learning. Learning is growing. We should never be afraid to grow and keep in learning through the days of our lives. Thinking you have it all down pat is a pretty arrogant way to look at things and would be stifling, I am afraid. No matter what our chronological age, “we have only just begun”. It is wisdom that the older we get, the more we realize how much we have to learn.

1 Chronicles 22:19 Now set your heart and soul to seek the Lord your God…….


Let’s look up a few verses writing down what the Lord is teaching us through them.

Proverbs 6:23

Proverbs 13:18

Proverbs 29:15

Proverbs 1:5

Proverbs 4:2

My Commitment:

Prayer: Our Father in heaven, thank You for your many blessings and benefits.  Thank You for teaching us and even for helping us to be teachable. You give understanding. We can even or maybe especially learn from our mistakes. Who IS like You, oh, Lord! We pray in the mighty name of Jesus, AMEN.
