Do you understand what you are reading?

Acts 8:30-31 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” (31) And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

If you understand what you are reading, be humble, but have the desire and zeal to help others understand.  Fear the earthly praise of man, but not the eternal praise of God.

If you don’t understand what you are reading, desire the greater understanding and have the humility to ask someone to help you.  Don’t fear the earthy shame of man, fear the eternal shame of not knowing Christ.
