Learning and Teaching

The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught. The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward. (Isaiah 50:4–5, ESV)

Ambrose, a leader in the early church, wrote in the fourth century AD, “I desire . . . that, in the endeavor to teach, I may be able to learn. For one is the true Master, who alone has not learnt, what He taught all; but men learn before they teach, and receive from Him what they may hand on to others.”

May we be those who learn from Christ and teach others the truth that has melted our hearts.
