“Be Always Ready to Learn”

As we become young adults, we have much knowledge.
If you are very good in your line of work, it can be easy to feel prideful.

Therefore, it can be hard to take advice from someone that you might believe is less skilled than you.

Please read the following verses.

Acts 18:24-28
24 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures.
25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John.
26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.

27 When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed.
28 For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

Apollos was a great and effective speaker. He taught on the life and deeds of Jesus.

Priscilla and Aquilla made tens using goat skins.

By using people like Paul, Priscilla, and Aqilla, the Holy Spirit of Christ taught more to believers as they became able to understand the Gospel of Grace.

Priscilla and Aquilla had learned about Christ’s Gospel from Paul.
And they explained it to Apollos.

Now Apollos might have stormed off become he was insulted by being advised by Priscilla and Aquilla.

Instead, he listened to them and became a great help for those who were listening to and accepting the Gospel of Grace.

We are never too old to learn. The Lord God has taught me so much in the last 24 years. I have needed to change some of my ideas and believe His.

It humbles one to be corrected by the Lord, but I would not have it any other way.
I trust that this might also be true with you.

Let us be more like Apollos.
