Instruction Needed

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Proverbs 13:1, Proverbs 13:10, Proverbs 13:18

"A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke" (Proverbs 13:1).

"By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom" (Proverbs 13:10).

"Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction, but whoever heeds reproof is honored" (Proverbs 13:18).

Part of living wisely is being open to receiving instruction from other people (people who have experienced things we haven't, people who have training in particular subjects or areas, people who have a strong relationship with God, people who are gifted in the areas of discernment and wisdom). Yet all too often, we get caught up in thinking that we know best. It's not a wise mindset and it can lead us off course pretty quickly. So I was thankful for the reminder today that if we want to live wisely, we need to be seeking out and then taking in advice and instruction from wise people around us.

How open are you to receiving advice from others? Who do you know that would be a good source of advice or instruction for you? Think back over the past year or so. What's one example of where instruction or advice you received and acted on was of benefit to you? Tami

Being a lot like my father is good and bad. When it comes to listening to advice I’m usually not very open. But luckily I have two sisters that have advice that I can trust and have helped this last year.
