1 Corinthians 14:29-33 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged. The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
By Paul’s instructions to the prophets, we can all see that the process of learning is enhanced by:
- giving each a chance to speak;
- waiting your turn even when you have a great idea;
- encouraging each other;
- and always remembering that if it is of God, there is order and peace.
