_A Teachable Spirit_
Hebrews 5:11-14 There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don't seem to listen. You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God's word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn't know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.
Just because people are "mature", doesn't mean they should stop learning or that they have learnt it all. This is an error in the body of Christ. Our place is to always and keep learning.
People spend so long in the gospel and are therefore considered "elders". This is not because they are knowledgeable about spiritual matters but simply because the have spent "years" being born again.
Regardless of anything, we should have a teachable spirit. We should be open to always learning when opportunity arises. Don't allow to become dull of hearing, lest you become spiritually dull.
A teachable spirit is what we should desire to have. Then you'll be relevant at all times.
Lord, give us a teachable spirit. Let us always be ready to learn from you.
