Welcome to my ninth blog!!!🙂
You must have heard this one. In this case, it is between one bright student and a teacher.
Student: How do you put an elephant in a fridge.
Teacher: No you can’t fit an elephant in a fridge!!!
Student: Just open the door, put in the elephant. Then close the door.
Student: How do you put a giraffe in a fridge?
Teacher: Open door, put the giraffe in, close the door.
Student: No…. first, open the door. Then, take the elephant out. Put the giraffe in. Close the door.
This is a question and answer session by a student and a teacher. The concept is a bright student asks the teacher a question. And the teacher answers.
In a classroom set up, it is the same or vice versa. A student asks a question. The teacher answers. Or the teacher asks a question and the student answers.
Next, after the question and answer session. The teacher will give a particular assignment. The teacher expects the student to do his/her research to come up with the answers. The student will definitely look for books where he or she can find the answers to the given assignment. If she or he can’t find the answers to the assignment and hasn’t yet understood the concept. He or she will go to a fellow classmate or the teacher to get help on how to do the assignment.
Hopefully, the student will have understood the assignment after a good explanation on how to do it from a friend or the teacher. And then he or she can complete his or her assignment. A long search… but he or she found what he or she wanted.
If the student comes to class and finds the teacher in. He will knock on the door and will be told to come in and sit in for his or her lesson.
Matthew 7:7-8…..Ask and you will receive. Search and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened for you.
8. Everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And the door will be opened for everyone who knocks.
Jesus said these words. He was explaining how our God works. Since he knew God and He was sent to teach us about Him. He acted as a teacher of God’s word.
He explained that when we asked God for something, we should expect to receive it. When we search for something on this earth, whether it is our dreams, goals and ambitions. Our everyday needs, we should expect to find them.
When we knock on a door for a particular opportunity, we should ask God. And he will help us to find it. That is if it’s good for us. He will give it to us.
So if you need something today. Ask God and expect an answer. He will answer you when the time is right. He is all-knowing. He will definitely answer.
