Proverbs 10:17 (NASB) “He is on the path of life who heeds instruction, But he who ignores reproof goes astray.”
After I heard the words, "I hear ya, but I'm going to do it my way," I turned to my wife and said, "He's going to be calling back soon." A friend had reached out looking for some construction advice, I listened to what he was facing and gave him the best option for what he was trying to accomplish. Then I heard those words "I hear ya, but I'm going to do it my way." Today's verse speaks of the one who is on the path of life heeds instruction, but the one who ignores it goes astray. Sure enough, within a few hours, my phone rang again; it was my friend asking me to explain again the option that I shared earlier. Sometimes we think we know what's best. Then we begin to put our thoughts into actions. When things begin to fall apart, that's when we usually seek help. Don't wait till your life begins to fall apart before you call out to God. Speak to Him daily, (prayer) walk with Him, (in the Spirit), and above all, make sure we heed His instructions (the Bible). That's the best path of life I know. I tried my own path, but thank God it led me right to Him. Where does your path lead?
