Please inquire of past generations, and consider the things searched out by their fathers.
For we are only of yesterday and know nothing, because our days on earth are as a shadow.
Will they not teach you and tell you, and bring forth words from their minds? Job 8:8-10
Bildad gave Job some good advice for a change. Learn from others! No one knows everything. Those who have lived before have a wealth of knowledge to add. This is why we should be life-long learners.
How much do I study, read, search and learn from the ‘fathers’? Is my attitude one of humility or do I think I have it all figured out?
God, I am so grateful for the Bible and the record of what You have done with before before. May these ‘fathers’ be a help to me and may You be my Father that teaches me all things.
