“He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding”
Today’s Morsel: When I was a counselor in prison, it was not uncommon to talk with some men who had been in and out of prison multiple times for the same offense. Solomon said he that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul. Why do so many folks seem to have a hard time with corrective counsel? When a person shuns godly counsel, whether it is from God’s word, a minister, teacher, or parent, it shows that the person doesn’t care about his life. But when one hears and obeys, he gets understanding and lives. “Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand”, Solomon said (Proverbs 19:20-21). Do you value godly counsel?
Sing: Lead me Lord, I will follow, lead me Lord, I will go. You have called me, I will answer, lead me Lord, I will go.
Thought For Today: The best counsel is the word of God.
