To Whom Should We Listen?
From one of my favorite devotionals, “Royal Insignia”.
“No man has any right to offer advise who has not first heard God speak. No man has any right to counsel others who is not ready to hear and follow the counsel of the Lord.
True moral wisdom must always be an echo of God’s voice. The only safe light for our path is the light which is reflected from Christ, the Light of the world.
It is especially important that young people learn whose counsel to trust.
Having been in the world for such a short time they have not had much experience and will look to others for advice.
And whether they know it or not, they do every day accept the opinions of others and adopt them as their own. Those who boast the loudest of their independance have picked up from someone the idea that independence is a virtue, and their very eagerness to be individualistic is the result of the influence of others. They are what they are because of the counsel they have followed.”
“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked.” (Psalm 1:1)
God’s spoken word will always align with His written word…
