Topic: Accept Good Advice – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi | Date: Monday, May 14, 2018.
“Every purpose is established by counsel:and with good advice make war” (Proverbs 20:18).
The topic for meditation this morning suggests that not all advice is good and helpful. This is the very reason why, as a youth, you must be very careful of the type of people that advice you. Rehoboam, the first son of King Solomon that succeeded him as king over Israel, made a terrible blunder by seeking counsel of his ungodly peers. He discarded the counsel of the godly old people and lost ten out of the twelve tribes of Israel to his enemy. This was why Lord Chesterfield said, “Advice is seldom welcome, and those who need it the most like it the least.
Today’s text emphasizes the importance of seeking advice from God-fearing people. Good counsels lead to success and victory, while bad or foolish advice leads to failure and defeat. The Holy Bible is a compilation of God’s counsel to man. Read it and obey its counsels that cover all areas of human life. But you must become a child of God for Him to speak to you through His word. Surrender your life to JESUS today.
Challenge: Who is your counsellor?
Prayer: Fill me with grace to obey you,oh LORD
