Daily Verse: “Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.” Prov. 10:17
Feedback causes growth.
On the life path, we need much instruction. Maintaining a humble heart will help us receive Godly direction from scripture and others. However, if we refuse wise advice, we’ll find ourselves straying into unwanted places.
Currently obsessed with golf, Ron bought me a package of lessons for Valentine’s Day. After battling my ego for a decade, admitting I needed help required humility. Hitting a stationary ball takes more effort than this tennis coach thought. To grow, I need feedback from a professional who knows the game better than I do.
Through scripture, we have access to the pros of our faith, people who walked before us, fulfilling their destinies. Learning to seek and apply the wisdom God offers through His people will help us live life to the fullest.
Living life fully requires a teachable spirit willing to take instruction, admitting we need help and don’t know everything. Humble hearts lead to Jesus, and all things become possible with Him.
Lord, thank You for giving us written instructions from the heroes of the faith we can apply to our lives. Keep our hearts soft, and spirit’s teachable so we can live life to the fullest with You. IJNIP. Amen
