It is that time of the year when one school bus after another stops in front of your car as they pick up seemingly endless lines of students.
But, if you seriously think about it, it is mostly the time when most, if not all, students, everyday learn highly prepared amounts of knowledge. The information gained are the building blocks of growth and development.
If you happen to be a student, why not view going to school with that outlook?
And Christians, why not approach your Bible study as seeking better understanding of God and His ways? Why not go to Church services with eagerness to hear what your teacher-God, (through your pastor, minister, rabbi, priest, nun, computer, robot, etc.) has to offer you? You know, I believe most of you already have this attitude! And that is just great.
Very often, Bible teachers, in order to provide you deeper lessons of the Bible and to get you “off the milk and into the meat” (Hebrews 5:12), must first slowly and systematically lay down new foundational material. I call this type of instruction, teaching the A, B, C’s of the course. By putting up with…oops, I mean…patiently following this initial course material, you will later find yourself relishing what you have learned and sharing it with others. This, at least, is what Jesus Christ wants you, as His children, to experience as you daily learn more about Him and His creation.
The video below of The Three Stooges is an example on how learning the A, B, C’s on any given subject you are studying can be easily mastered.
