It’s The Principles For Me

Week 10: How To Have A Teachable Spirit

Proverbs 12:1 NKJV

“Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, But he who hates correction is stupid.”

Proverbs 12:1 TPT

“To learn the truth you must long to be teachable, or you can despise correction and remain ignorant.”

Today, the truth is twisted and turned to fit our life.

We take our opinions today and make them truth.

Our opinions have kept us bound and from experiencing true freedom.

God desires for us to be free.

In order to be free, we must have a teachable spirit.

How Do We Have A Teachable Spirit?

  • Truth is not on our

Proverbs 12:15 TPT

“A fool is in love with his own opinion, but wisdom means being teachable.”

Proverbs 16:2 TPT

“We are all in love with our own opinions, convinced they’re correct. But the Lord is in the midst of us, testing and probing our every motive.”

If your truth manipulates others, it is not truth.

The Pharisees were in love with their own opinion and it limited them from receiving the truth from Christ.

If you are in love with your own opinion, it is hard for you to be teachable!

Proverbs 9:8 TPT

“So don’t even bother to correct a mocker, for he’ll only hate you for it. But go ahead and correct the wise; they’ll love you even more.”

When you are so in love with your own opinion, it can cause you to bring destruction upon your life!

Proverbs 13:13 TPT

“Despise the word, will you? Then you’ll pay the price and it won’t be pretty! But the one who honors the Father’s holy instructions will be rewarded.”

In order for us to be teachable, we must relinquish our own opinions.

How do we relinquish our own opinions?

Proverbs 3:5 TPT

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.”

Give up the idea of

Proverbs 12:23 TPT

“Those who possess wisdom don’t feel the need to impress others with what they know, but foolish ones make sure their ignorance is on display.”

Trying to impress others speaks to our immaturity

Being an influence speaks to our maturity.

When are attempt to impress others, we take the glory from God to us.

Wisdom is an influence in our lives.

Matthew 5:16 TPT

So don’t hide your light![b] Let it shine brightly before others, so that your commendable works[c] will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”

When you have a teachable spirit, you become an influence.

When you don’t have a teachable spirit, you become one who wants to impress others.

Be Hungry

Proverbs 18:15 TPT

“The spiritually hungry are always ready to learn more, for their hearts are eager to discover new truths.”

Good desires for us to dive fully into who he is!

Spiritual growth does not only reveal who God is, it reveals who you are!

Are you eager to learn?

Are you eager to discover new truths?

When you discover new truth, you discover life!

A fruitful life requires you to have a teachable spirit.

A seed has to be disciplined to turn into a tree!

Psalms 25:4-9 TPT

Direct me, Yahweh, throughout my journey

    so I can experience your plans for my life.

    Reveal the life-paths that are pleasing to you.

Escort me into your truth; take me by the hand and teach me.[

    For you are the God of my salvation;

    I have wrapped my heart into yours all day long![b]


Forgive my failures as a young man,

    and overlook the sins of my immaturity.

    Give me grace, Yahweh! Always look at me

    through your eyes of love—

    your forgiving eyes of mercy and compassion.

    When you think of me, see me as one you love and care for.

How good you are to me!

    When people turn to you, Yahweh,

    they discover how easy you are to please—so faithful and true!

    Joyfully you teach them the proper path,

    even when they go astray.

Keep showing the humble your path,

    and lead them into the best decision.

    Bring revelation-light that trains them in the truth.


Have a teachable spirit and watch how wisdom will transform your life.
