Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

When are we the best students, when are we the most teachable?

Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

- Hebrews 5:8-10 TNIV

We usually are not the best students, not too teachable when things are going smoothly. The baseball slugger doesn't listen to the hitting coach until he's in a slump. A human truth: we learn in the pressure cooker of life, we are teachable when we're struggling, suffering.

Jesus suffered. If Jesus went through such ordeals, what makes us think that as his followers we won't as well. So...what are you learning these days?
