    BB –  We are talking today about … The Art Of Receiving Instruction … and it makes sense that we get  a word from you from the start … since you do have a masters degree… what are some of your keys to receiving instruction?

JT answers and discussion

 

  1. Bob – POINT: Receiving Instruction does not come natural because we have to fight off this thing called pride which comes across that we know it all… BUT God tells us that those who are ready to receive instruction are the ones who will go far in the race of life….


Proverbs 15:32 (ESV) — 32 Whoever ignores instruction despises himself, but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence.

Proverbs 13:18 (ESV) — 18 Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction, but whoever heeds reproof is honored.

  1. JTQuestion ONE - FROM THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE….

 

How is having a desire to learn an important part of spiritual growth and maturity?

 

  1. Bob

 

Matthew 11:28–30 (ESV) — 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

James 1:19–25 (ESV) — 19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

Proverbs 11:2 (ESV) — 2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.

 

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT”

 

What are some things we can do from a mental aspect to aid in our learning?

 

  1. Bob

 

James 1:19–25 (ESV) — 19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
