What I Know

This is going to be a bit repetitious.  Yesterday I suggested that the Word has the same impact on us regardless of where we live.  Chuck responded by saying that sometimes those of us who have been privileged to teach others in the Word are impressed that we can.
It does not matter what we know.
Does it matter how much a teacher knows?  Thoughts at DTTB.
I may have the best grasp on the difficult passages and concepts in the Word of God.  That is good for me.  That does not help others very much.  Unless it points them in a direction for them to do their own work and come up with their own handle on difficult issues.  Acts 17:11 echoes this.  The Bereans were called noble minded for looking to the Scripture for themselves.

It does not matter what the teacher knows.  What matters is whether the teacher can equip the student to be able to find out what the teacher knows for himself.

That is our job as dads.  To teach our kids to be able to stand on their own in the Word of God.  Of course that assumes we can.
