Day 105 – He that Heeds Counsel is Wise

by

‘The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.’

Proverbs 12:15

One of the characteristics of a fool is not to listen to good advice from those with more experience, they believe they are always right. Fools also do not take heed to the word of the Lord. We should avoid acting like a fool. Look inwards today and think about the different areas where you believe you know everything. Is this attitude foolish? Have others counselled you and you disregard their counsel, thinking you know it all? I must say, this is a sign of foolishness.

Actually, this is a thing of the heart that shows up in attitude. You really don’t have to accept or follow every other person’s opinion about anything. But a disposition of ‘I know it all,’ a disposition that does not give consideration to ideas expressed even by those obviously more matured and more experienced than yourself is foolish. This is kind of attitude must be avoided. Begin right now to take stock and repent s needed.

Listen to the counsel of the wise and righteous, or you risk acting in foolishness. I pray that the Lord grant you the wisdom you need to face the day and prosper in it in the name of Jesus, Amen.
