Listen to advice and accept instruction,
That you may gain wisdom for the future.
Proverbs 19:20 (RSV)
Building on yesterday’s message of seeking and getting true wisdom and understanding from God, today we focus again on the same theme because it is so crucial.
Obtaining God’s wisdom and advice is priceless, but it is difficult for many of us in today’s environment that is so focused on worldly things. How can we stay focused on this?
Remember that the Bible is the ultimate guidebook on wisdom. Take biblical scripture into consideration when you are making big decisions, or anytime you are confused about an issue. Read it and pray over it, and let God speak to you on what you should do. And then do it!
"Confidence that one's impressions are God-given is no guarantee that this is really so, even when they persist and grow stronger through long seasons of prayer. Bible-based wisdom must judge them."
- J.I. Packer
