Who’s Teaching You?

August 28, 2017

Last Monday: What are you learning?

Today: Who’s teaching you?

My grandfather would listen while my grade school self told another wild tale I’d heard from a certain group of kids. When I’d wound down, he’d look away and say, “Consider the source.” I figured out right away what he meant.

“Consider the source” applies to what we’re learning, too.

I could tell you everything I know about your upcoming surgery, or about what’s causing that new sound in your car, and it wouldn’t take long for either. I’m sure not the source you want for medical or mechanical advice.

You and I can learn just about anything with a few computer keystrokes or touches to our phone’s thumbpad. We can be so far beyond people of Bible times in our knowledge as to be incomprehensible to them.

As 2nd Timothy 3:7 says, we can be always learning.

Always learning.

But that’s not the end of that verse.

It goes on, speaking of people who are always learning but never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 

Oops.

Ouch.

This is not for you.

So again, I ask you: What are you learning, and from where or from whom?

“Consider the source” and where your learning is leading you.
