Learning from others

Posted: March 15, 2011 in Uncategorized

I went fishing with Dad today and it became apparent he had been doing a lot of fishing on Lake Okeechobee this winter. It’s always good to go with a master who knows what they are doing. The learning curve of how, where, and what technique was almost nonexistent this morning. I simply had to learn the presentation of the bait. I appreciate his ability to find, locate and catch fish. We had a great time.

At some point in life I came to the understanding that the more I learn, the less I know. One thing I have learned is the principle that I can always learn something from a master. This goes for any area of life. I now rely on the wisdom and experience of others more than I ever have. In almost every important situation I seek advice, counsel and knowledge from one or more people I respect, who has been down the road before me. While gaining understanding and the wisdom of others I diligently search the scriptures and seek God’s face. I don’t want to make the mistake of forgetting the real Master. God’s word is true and He is our Master.

I can learn something from almost everyone. Every person is a 10 in some area. I am thankful how God builds the body of Christ in the local church. My life is enriched through the many relationships God continues to bring into my life. My greatest friend and teacher has been my wife. Just a few thoughts from a blessed pastor!
