Most school age children hope that peers never label them the ‘Teacher’s Pet.’ On the other hand, they secretly desire preferential treatment from their teachers. In the Christian life, Jesus is the Master teacher. Am I teachable through trials or petulant?
“Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses (Psalms 25:12 NKJ).”
He is reaching, He is teaching…
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 NKJ).”
I pray that I will remain teachable through trials.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing (James 1:2-4 NKJ).”
