Good Morning October 1

There is an interesting verse in Psalm 141. “Let a righteous man strike me-it is a kindness; let him rebuke me-it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it.”(vs.5) Now, no one likes to be struck, or to receive a rebuke, but the question here is the manner in which it is received. Proverbs 9:9 and other similar verses add to this though. “Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.” The attitude here is one of humility, of understanding that we do not have all wisdom, and are not always right. It is a desire to learn and grow, to forgive and ask forgiveness. It is the picture of the twelve year old boy, Jesus, in the Temple asking the scholars questions and sharpening His understanding. Even though He knew He had a calling from God, He grew by submitting Himself to the Scriptures and to those in authority. Humility is not weakness. It is the desire to learn the truth, and to stand on the firm ground of God’s righteousness.
