8Good and upright is the LORD;
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
9He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble his way.
Humility and being teachable go hand in hand. When we fail to remain humble, we will no longer be able to be taught anything. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. He will give instruction to those willing to hear it; but to those who cannot or will not listen, God will be unknowable and inaudible. Want to hear from God? Humility is the key.
