Weekday devotionals for Christians

Are You My Teacher?

Tit 3:14  And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.

“Every man is my teacher”, is what I heard growing up from a hero of the faith, Dr Jack Hyles.  I will not give the statistics of what God has done through him, but I will tell you that he was used in a mighty way to change our country for good and for God!  When Bro. Hyles stated that he can learn from any person, it was like Albert Pujols saying that he still has a lot to learn about being a good hitter, it was like Michael Jordan saying that he still has a lot to learn about the game of basketball, it is like Donald Trump saying that he has a lot to learn on the subjects of Real-Estate and Business!

If Bro. Hyles can humbly admit that he still has a lot to learn, then I can admit that  I have a LOT to learn still!  My point with all of this is that I have learned a lot from a tree.  Yes, a lowly pine tree is my teacher.  I am not ashamed to admit this.  Over the course of the next few devotionals, I will share with you the many lessons that I have learned from the lowly pine tree.  Will you be open and receptive to the lessons and thoughts that have helped me?  I encourage you to  read with an open heart and a teachable spirit!
