Message Monday 03/02/15 – Proverbs: Advice

Chuck Foreman – Teaching Pastor

“The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15)  Isn’t it interesting how often we think we’re right, but how often we also believe we are wise? According to Solomon, the two seem to be mutually exclusive. So which is it for you?  You can’t be both right in your own eyes and wise. 

It’s also interesting how often we don’t want to listen to advice or warning about what we want to do, but how willing we are to receive help to get us out of the very predicament the advice we rejected had warned us about. If you’re like me, that sounds painfully familiar. Here’s the deal—the way to wisdom is humility. Humility is the willingness to push pause on your impulses, to second guess yourself and to seek the advice of the experienced. What’s it going to be for you? Will you be a fool or will you be wise? The choice is yours.
