Prov. 4:13 “Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life..”
Some people don’t like instruction. They want to do everything their own way.
The followers of Jesus are eager for instruction that they might be more effective and live more wisely. These are those who seek to serve and help others who are in need.
The teachable spirit comes about through Spiritual Exercise where the Holy Spirit is invited into the heart to guide and influence for good.
Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
