The Wise Will Listen
| Proverbs 15: 31.
" The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the
wise." The experiences of life teach us many lessons if only we would
learn. The problem most of us have is that we turn a deaf ear and a blind
eye toward the lessons presented and continue a pathway of foolishness
that leads to our own destruction. The wise will pay attention and profit
from what life teaches.
This is why the counsel and advice of age is of benefit to the young. The older people have been around the track and know what young people have yet to discover. But so many youth today are being told they are so much wiser than their parents that they give no heed and soon will reap the sad harvest of their folly.
