These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Acts 17:11

A Powerful Book

I am amazed when I encounter people who think that something is true just because they believe it is (without any real basis) as if their believing it to be true makes it so!  In reality, it doesn’t matter what you or I or any other person thinks.  What matters is what the Bible says about any subject, and it has plenty to say; if not by way of direct command, at least in principle.  It is a powerful book, full of wisdom and instruction.  In Acts 17:11, Luke commends the people of Berea for their diligence in looking into the scriptures to compare what they were hearing to God’s written word.  We would all be wise to follow the example of the Bereans.  “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:11
