Listen Like a Child

“And he said, ‘How can I, unless someone guides me?’ And he asked Phillip to come up and sit with him.” (Acts 8:31, KJV)

The huge 747 raced ever faster with each passing second. The pilot nosed the craft heavenward, and the plane left the ground. He listened constantly to ground observers, and he would continue to do so for the flight’s duration.

The cockpit has no “beefs” with the ground observers. They take information and respond accordingly. They are free to reject the information, but, if they are wise, they heed it.

One must be humble to receive truth. It is no different in Bible study. The kingdom must be received with childlike humility. We understand why: receiving truth requires humility.

Timothy received the truth in childlike humility and innocence, guided by Eunice and Lois. His youthful energy was focused on God.

Like a huge jet aircraft which never makes its destination, a life not aimed at God is a wasted life. All of that effort . . . for nothing. “Depart from Me, I never knew you,” Jesus will say of misdirected lives. Listen, with a childlike heart.

It is hard for a “superior” person to be used of the Lord.
- R. C. Halverson

O, my Father, never let me get prideful, for pride cuts off my hearing of Your Word. May I ever walk with You, as a child does, holding his Dad’s hand. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
- DAN ROBINSON, Southgate, Michigan
