1.We learn from Paul the importance of keeping our WORD.

(Galatians 6:1-2; Titus 2:7-8; Proverbs 9:9, 32:8; Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 6:1-2; Ephesians 4:15; 1 Thessalonians 5:14)
4.We learn from Apollos that regardless of gifts or abilities, none of our privileges matter if we are not TEACHABLE.
(1 Peter 5:5; Proverbs 3:7-8, 12:1, 13:18, 26:12; 1 Corinthians 2:13-14)
5.Having a teachable spirit can fuel our desire to GO.

Taking it further to help you THRIVE…
1.Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?
2.In our fast-paced, multi-tasking world, what are the dangers of missing the “one by one” opportunities?
3.In what ways can it be difficult to approach someone with correction or instruction?
4.What are some typical roadblocks to having a teachable heart? How can we overcome these?
5.Paul tells the Corinthian Church, (1 Corinthians 3:6) “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.” In what ways has God used you lately to be a “waterer?” How can you be a better waterer?
