Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 4:13-16; Proverbs 12:15

Solomon's message in both Ecclesiastes and Proverbs makes it clear that no matter what our age, status, education, financial condition--we need to remain open to receiving advice. And when you think about it, that makes a lot of sense. Yet, as I observe people and consider my own behavior, all too often we're closed minded. We let our pride and our comfort zones get in the way of receiving advice that might be the exact thing we need to help us live better and more fully. One of the things I tell myself often is that if I'm still breathing, there's room for improvement, which means I need to be open to new ideas, new methods, new people, new things in general.

How often do you seek advice regarding family, work and/or spiritual matters? In what areas are you more likely to be open to advice? What about less likely? How do today's verses build on Solomon's message in verse 9 that "two are better than one"? Tami

I've found myself seeking a great deal of advice this week. I'm so appreciative of those willing to freely share it.
