“So all the people departed to eat and drink and to share their food with others and to enjoy tremendous joy, for they had gained insight in the matters that had been made known to them.”
Returning to Israel, the people heard the word of God and celebrated the feast.
How does understanding God’s will contribute to our joy?
When I have a troubling or difficult problem to face, I want a friend I can confide in; one with whom I can pour out my innermost feelings to; one who understands what I’m going through, and one who can offer wisdom, insight, and if possible, a solution (or solutions) to the problem.
When do I grow the most spiritually? When I’m teaching a Bible class where members can freely discuss the topic that is being presented from God’s word. Many times, members of the class have brought up thoughts and ideas that I never thought of in my study of the topic.
The Bible class teacher always benefits the most, not only from his or her study of the Bible, but from the input of other members as well. I grow spiritually, when members of the class offer their good wisdom and insight into the Word.
