Remain Teachable

If I think I already know everything… then I can’t be taught. 

I’ve learned a lot in my 42 yrs here, but I have come to believe that the Truth is infinite & therefore, there is much left to learn. 

Most of my life I was pretending to be smarter than I was because I was afraid that saying “I don’t know” or making a mistake, would make me look like a fool & people wouldn’t like me. 

Now, saying “I don’t know” is telling the Truth & people tend like Honest people. 

The goal for today: know the Truth, but remain teachable! 

Have a great day everybody!

  1. Thank you, I used to be like that too. I had suffered rejection and I thought I always had to have it all right in order to please people and be accepted, but God has delivered me from that bondage.

  2. Hm, “teachable” is a great and precise word for this process. I often think about the idea that we should stay open to the world and other people’s opinions. I wish we had that word in Russian.

    • I agree… it is a great word for this. In my mind the word ‘teachable’ is a combination of humility, open mindedness & confidence. I can admit that I don’t know everything… open my mind to learning new things… & stand firm on some of the ‘facts’ of life that I have already learned. It is learning in all three tenses… past, present & future. Your comment just encouraged me learn more about this topic… thanks for that! Have a great day! πŸ™‚
