Willing To Listen

Want some good advice? Check out Proverbs 12:15.

It may be that you receive more advice at some point today. How will you respond?

Some young people couldn’t be less interested in listening to the advice of others, whether the advisers are young or old. If you find yourself on the receiving end of advice today, remember this verse. “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes.” Some young men are convinced they have it all figured out, regardless of what others may say. Some young women know their way is right, no matter what others may suggest. Some young people are “fools.”

Remember today that “a wise man listens to advice.” In the long run, you may not actually take it, but the wise person at least gives the adviser a fair and honest hearing.

Aren’t those words that could keep a lot of us out of a whole lot of trouble?
