A Jewel from Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry on a Wise Teacher's Handling of "Impertinent Unprofitable Questions"

While Anne was studying last night for a Bible Study she gave this morning, I spied in her notes a great quote from Matthew Henry. Here it is.

"Those that would be apt to teach must be swift to hear, and study to answer. It is the wisdom of teachers, when they are asked even impertinent unprofitable questions, thence to take occasion to answer in that which is profitable, that the question may be rejected, but not the request."

From Matthew Henry, Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible (Peabody : Hendrickson, 1996), vide notes on John 6:28.
