The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
All throughout our life, we will face situations that test which way we will take. Will we be like the fool and go our own way? Or will we seek and follow counsel?
As I pondered the last part of this verse, I began to think of those from whom we are to get counsel. Pastors, parents, and older men and women immediately came to my mind. But, the Lord brought another counselor to my mind: His Word. Psalm 119:24 says, “Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.” How often do I seek God’s Word for counsel? And how often do I hearken to that counsel?
May it always be my goal to lean not on my understanding, but go to God for His wise counsel and guidance.
