EXPERIENCE IS NOT THE BEST TEACHER

Scripture for Today
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (ESV)

Two teachers were once applying for the same Vice-Principal position at  a local high school. One had been teaching a total of 8 years and the other a total of 20. Everyone expected the teacher with the greater experience to get the job, but when a decision was made it was the person with 8 years teaching who was chosen. The teacher overlooked for the job complained bitterly – “I’ve got 20 years teaching to her 8” he cried. “I’m vastly more qualified.”

The School Board’s reply went like this: “Yes sir, you do have 20 years teaching to her 8, but where she has 8 years experience you have 1 years experience repeated 20 times.”

Simply experiencing the passage of time doesn’t mean we have grown or learned from those things we experience during that time. So many times they say the older ones are wiser especially through experience but the truth still remains that it's not every experience we learn from. Not ever experience that gives us absolute wisdom. True wisdom come from God, he gives it to as many that come to him with a sincere heart to receive from him. 

Experience they say is the best teacher but if we keep looking away from every lesson we are to get from every experience we won't get the lesson from it. 

Prayer: Father, I pray for wisdom to deal with life issues.
