Proverbs 14:15-17 -- On Taking God's Advice

"The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated."
Proverbs 14:15-17

Some good advice from God today.  We should think about what people say, and examine our path.  We should avoid overconfidence, and remember that we need the Lord... losing the spirit and having to face life without God's advice and assistance is scary, not because God will beat us up otherwise, but only because we just tend to do so poorly without a lot of help.  We need his help, and his patient guidance as we learn to overcome our weaknesses.  And when we get angry we make bad decisions and destroy relationships.

Today, let's work on taking some advice from God.  Let's think about where we are headed, and try to cut down on the overconfidence and the foolishness that we all engage in from time to time.  Let's reach out to God and trust in his advice and guidance, keeping our eyes open, and learning as God gives us directions on how to get back on the right path.
