Be Teachable

Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. Proverbs 19:20

Helping and ministering to others, in most instances, is a process of imparting our knowledge and wisdom toward them.

Have you ever looked at it from the other person's perspective? It isn't always about what we are doing for them or saying to them that is most important. Sometimes we need to stop, listen and observe what is taking place around us. Often we can learn so much more not only about the person we are ministering to but also about ourselves through what is being said or done.

Wisdom comes from being teachable! As we are open to hearing advice and receiving instruction from those we serve and those we serve with in ministry, our wisdom will grow.

Question to think about:  In what ways do you need to open yourself up to the advice and instruction of others you serve and serve with in ministry?
