“Listen to counsel and accept discipline, that you may be wise the rest of your days.” Proverbs 19:20 NASB
Hard words in today’s culture, right? But honestly, pride has always waged war against words of correction, against hearing anything contrary to what we perceive to be our righteous and justified actions. But there is value in being corrected, either through the Holy Spirit or words of wisdom from a godly friend.
Not all counsel is right – pray over it and get more counsel. But be willing to ask beyond the people you know will agree with you.
