Teachable

Proverbs 1:20-25  Wisdom shouts in the street, she lifts her voice in the square; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings:
“How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded? and  scoffers delight themselves in scoffing and fools hate knowledge?  Turn to my reproof. Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.  Because I called and you refused,  I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention.  And you neglected all my counsel  And did not want my reproof;

Having a teachable spirit is such an important character trait, and so easy to not have because of our pride.  A prideful person says, “I know”, but a humble person says, “teach me, show me, help me”. Whenever this character trait rolls around, and it is the one I am supposed to focus on for a week, I make it a point of calling some people I know that are doing well in life, asking them to go out for lunch, I always buy, and I ask previously thought out questions.  I take good notes. Usually, as a result of the notes taken I write some new goals.

There aren’t many people today that look frantically for wisdom. Those who do find it, or really God gives His wisdom to them. Life is an exciting ride then.
