Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. – Proverbs 19:20-21 NIV
The Lord can show us what advice to follow according to His purpose for our lives.
When we listen to advice from the wrong sources and seek to please those who are not closely aligned with God, we end up implementing feedback that does not serve us.
Wisdom comes from being able to discern the trustworthy sources around us. When everyone praises us except for one person, it is possible that the feedback from that person is not valid.
The path that we may be on could require many steps and several leaps of faith.
The Lord tells us to choose this day whom we shall serve. Our good works and recognition belong to the Lord. He is the source of all good things. Amen.
