If you think learning is weighted to the side of the instructor you probably are not going to learn much no matter how good the instruction is.
We say it like this, ‘I didn’t get anything out of that sermons’ or ‘the teacher is too boring to keep my attention’, or ‘that person just can’t relate to the audience’. They are all are ways of saying the same thing. The failure to learn is not the fault of the learner
However, let’s consider this scripture:
A scoffer seeks wisdom and finds none, But knowledge is easy to one who has understanding.
Notice the difference? Those that are quick to judge the process never seem to find anything at all. But for those wanting to learn, there is plenty to find. If we are too busy judging the lesson, it removes the possibility of getting the lesson (James 4:11).
Don’t think I’m saying there are not needed improvement in our teaching, there absolutely are! What I’m trying to get at is that if we really want to learn, we can get something out of about any lesson. There is still nutrition in untasty meals.
Instead of wasting everything let’s try to get out what we can. It may be a lot more than we think!
