Day 28: Test

When human teachers give us a test the goal is to determine our prior knowledge to help guide instruction in a new course, or to determine what we have learned in a current course. When Jehovah God gives us a test, one of the goals is to reveal to us what He already knows about us but what may be unknown to us. He is omniscient and is never surprised by us or our circumstances. Somethings we don’t know about ourselves have to be revealed to us to help us address them and mature spiritually and in other areas. But what is revealed is not always negative or an area where we need to grow. Sometimes what the test reveals is how much we have grown.

This post is for Day 28 of the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes Writing Challenge. The theme of my series is, “Season,” (which, at this point in the challenge, is loosely) based on the definition, “make (wood) suitable for use as timber by adjusting its moisture content to that of the environment in which it will be used.” Please click here to find the Table of Contents and links to other posts in the series.

  1. Yes, it’s not always a negative. Why is it we think of testing as a negative? I guess because it is often painful, but it’s always about learning and growth. Thanks. #8 on 31Days.
