Daily Reading: Exodus 37:1-38:31, Matthew 28:1-20, Psalm 34:11-22, Proverbs 9:9-10

Daily Verse:Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.” Prov. 9:9

Instruction never ends.

In a message series titled “Blessings,” our pastor’s current teaching comes from the Beatitudes.  Talking about growth, he asked us what we did to continue growing.  One of his questions convicted me: what readings outside the Bible did we do to help us mature in our walk with Christ?

If we want to keep moving forward, we must remain teachable.  Pondering the pastor’s question, I became convicted about committing to reading more books to help me grow.

“What is down in the well comes up in the bucket.  Fill yourself with positive things.” Tony Dungy, ‘Uncommon’

We choose what instructions we follow.  Filling our hearts well with positive things means reading and memorizing scripture, engaging with Christ’s followers, and continually finding ways to learn and grow.

Lord, illuminate unteachable areas in our life.  Soften our hearts and minds to receive instruction, knowing we always have more to learn.  Let us live blessed lives as we apply Your teachings to our lives. IJNIP. Amen
