The Wise Listen To Advice.

The Wise Listen To Advice.




Dear Friends, today’s devotional is a simple reminder: the wise listen to advice.

If we want to be wise, we have to realize that we don’t know it all – nobody knows it all!

If we want to grow in wisdom, we have to realize the importance of listening. We have to realize that sometimes, we may not have the perspective others might have… a different perspective that could actually benefit us greatly, if we would only take the time to listen.

Dear Friends, may we always remember that we don’t always have to act on advice we are given, but we owe it to ourselves to at least listen. Friends, the wise listen to advice.

Proverbs 1:5, NIV let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance…

No matter how wise and learned and knowledgeable we may be, we will never know everything about everything. Nobody knows everything about everything… Nobody knows it all.
Oh Lord, help us to always remember this!




Dear Friends: we all need each other, and we can all learn from each other. When we take the time to humbly listen to and consider advice, we give ourselves the opportunity to continue learning and growing, to the glory of God. See also: Humility is the key to success; The Calling of Humility

Prayer
Dear Lord, Thank you for teaching us, reteaching us, reminding us, and for helping us grow. Please help us to always remember that the wise listen to advice. Help us to be quick to listen and slow to speak. Help us to seek to understand more than we seek to be understood. We want to be wise! O Lord, please help us to continue to gain wisdom from you, and from all the “teachers” you have placed in our lives – old and young alike. May your name always be glorified in our lives! Amen.
