WISDOM BUILDER. You may have noticed it–there are too many advisers in this world often giving unsolicited advices. And they all want you to take their advice. They’re all experts and they all see you as someone who doesn’t know what to do. Well, that’s human nature, you have to be patient with people if you want to succeed in life. But the question is, with all the hundreds of advices you get, which one would you take?
The answer: none.
But do listen to advices, especially those coming from folks with the relevant experience you need. The Word says: “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed,” [Proverbs 15.22]. It doesn’t say you need to follow all the advisers tell you. It just says with many advisers come success. This means you need to listen to wise advisers so you can see a problem from various angles and perspectives. Then you can arrive at your own conclusion.
But do listen to advices, especially those coming from folks with the relevant experience you need.
Don’t be a robot swallowing what every Tom, Dick and Harry shoves down your throat. Don’t let people push you around to any direction they want to. But do listen and pick your advisers well–make sure they know what they’re talking about. You may also read books, newspaper or magazine articles, blogs, or e-books. And do read the bible.
When you have listened enough, spend quality time alone with God and ask him what he thinks. He will make you see what’s best for you. He should give the final verdict. Then you decide.
