Everyday life has some new lessons to teach us however we fail to learn it. What could be the reasons for this failure to learn? I think our unpreparedness of mind and heart is responsible for this phenomenon.
The preparedness of mind and heart is prerequisite for learning any new concept.
Greater the hunger for truth, greatly we will be satisfied with truth.
Only such kind of quest and hunger can be satisfied by teaching and learning activities.
Paul and Silas were deputed to Berea to teach the thriving church over there. The Bereans were noble people. They eagerly heard teachings of Paul and Silas. They taught them about Christ Jesus in the scripture. They went home and verified the teachings of Paul and Silas.
This kind of dedication and commitment to the scripture is remarkable. The Bereans, once they were at home they devoted their time and energy to study the scriptures. They were hungry to learn the truth.
Dear friend, we have a great lesson to learn from the example of Bereans. They were equipped with readiness of mind. They were teachable and receptive to the scripture. They were seekers, they dug into the scripture to learn the truth and whole truth about Jesus. May God bless us with similar zeal to know Jesus our Lord.
Acts 17:11 KJVS
These (Bereans) were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Abundant blessings dear friend.
