Are You Listening?
“Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge. For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips” (Proverbs 22:17-18).
How many times do you listen to sound advice? How many times do you listen to the voice of reason?
Often we want to do our own thing, follow our own path. This is good, but you have to know when to listen to sound advice and when to ignore it.
Many times we don’t do this, and we either let people make decisions for us, or we don’t follow people’s advice at all.
The key is to listen to wisdom…and to pray about it. Let God help you determine whether to listen or to ignore it.
The most important pieces of wisdom you will find when you read the Word and listen for God to speak to your spirit. That is advice that will never steer you wrong.
