And now a minute with the word...
I find the Berean Jews fascinating and inspiring. Consider it. It mentions in v 11 that they received the word with readiness and eagerness. But also, they searched the scriptures daily to make sure the things were so. They were learning from Paul: highly educated and an apostle. Don’t you think they could have taken his word for it? No, for he was still a man. They were going to study the scriptures and not just take his word for it. They are certainly an example to us. How much more available are the scriptures to us? We have dozens of translations at the tips of our fingers. We should continually be studying and meditating upon scriptures. Especially when we hear lessons, we should make sure it is aligned with the Bible, even if it is someone you trust, like an elder or the preacher. Let us delight in the law of the Lord and meditate on it day and night.
