DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 12:1-13:23; Psalms 116:1-117:2; Mark 3:13-35

And they cast lots for their duty, the small as well as the great, the teacher with the scholar. 1 Chronicles 25:8

To those who are regularly given opportunity to teach God’s Word in your assembly: are you also a scholar? A lot of precious “pulpit time” is being used for personal opinions, anecdotes, and irrelevant stories, because the person teaching has not also been a scholar. The Spirit’s injunction to “feed the flock of God” (1 Peter 5:2) requires that teaching brothers be steadfast students of the Bible. Are you? —Rick Morse

O teach me, Lord, that I may teach;
The precious things Thou dost impart. —Frances R. Havergal
