We Never Guess, We Look It Up!

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

These words appeared on a small button which my oldest son received many years ago. It was distributed as a promotional item by a leading encyclopedia company. The program encouraged students to receive the correct answer by making use of their reference materials. When introduced to their program I thought immediately of its scriptural application. How strong would the members of the Body of Christ be today if they would only “Look It Up!”

In any area of study it is easy simply to go on what one has heard, or on one’s preconceived ideas or assumptions; but this is not the nature of a true student or researcher. We can study the Scriptures for ourselves, so that we may know first-hand the facts of His Word. It is such a noble work to seek the truth for one’s self. The Book of Acts tells us that this was the spirit of those whom Paul taught in the city of Berea.

Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, who receive the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures day by day, to see if these things we so (Acts 17:11).

Dare to have such a noble spirit. Never guess, look it up!
