Teachable

Today's reading: Esther 2:1-18

Yesterday we met Esther and familiarized ourselves with this young woman. One particular thing that caught my attention was verse 15 where we see these words about Esther when it was her turn to go to the king.

"When the turn came for Esther... to go in to the king, she asked for nothing except what Hegai the king's eunuch, who had charge of the women, advised."

Esther was mature beyond her years. How wise that rather than relying on her own thoughts and devising her own plan (which for most teenage girls would likely be full of beautiful, glitzy clothing, professionally applied makeup and perhaps some premeditated witty conversation to attract the king), she relied on her caretaker, Hegai, to guide and direct her.

Esther didn't allow herself to get caught up in what was taking place around her. She kept her eyes on God, and as a result, her humble, authentic and obedient heart shined through for all to observe.

Is it your practice to look for opportunities to learn from others? How open are you to listening to and taking advice from someone who has knowledge in a particular area? What role does humility play in being teachable? Tami

This study has caused me to want to be in the practice to look for opportunities to learn from others,be a better listener,open to taking advice and not to be afraid to say, "I do not know, but I willing to learn". May I be found humble in spirit to learn more from others and from my God and Savior!

Thanks Tami, you have been one of my teachers and I have learned a lot from you.

God bless your talent to teach.
