The people here were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, since they welcomed the message with eagerness and examined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
These people were commended by Paul for not taking his word for it.
He was encouraged by their devotion to God’s Word, not his words.
Their diligence did not quench their eagerness.
Their eagerness did not ignore diligence.
But don’t take my word for it, take His Word for it.
Examine the Scriptures daily.
