Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.

PSalm 25:8-9

Who is a good student? It’s not the knowledgeable person, he has biases and preconceptions that make him difficult to teach. It’s not the arrogant who refuse to be taught because of their poor estimation of their own abilities.

The best kind of student is one who not only wants to learn but knows how little he knows! So what is it that we are humbly learning from God? The things he has expertise in: righteousness. If we are humble, we can become a student of goodness and uprightness, for His Own sake!
