“A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:” (Proverbs 1:5). “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” (Proverbs 27:12). One of the most needed abilities is availability and also experience. A Wise man will learn from his own mistakes but a Wiser man will learn from the mistakes of others. Experience is a better teacher but often a bitter teacher. Listening to the voice of experience from those who have gone before you is often a better short cut. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6). “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”(Amos 3:7). Do you want to be successful and prosperrous? The Bible tells us how. “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” (Joshua 1:8). “Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” (Deuteronomy 5:16). “The only thing we learn from History is that we never learn from History.” Toynbee said. The reason we study History is to learn from the mistakes of others. “He that can not learn from History is doomed to repeat it.” We also study History to prove the Bible. Why must we learn the hard way? Beloved try and take the advice from those that love you and have experience and want to help you, or you can go your own way and learn it the hard way. Don’t leave school before the bell rings. Be a faithful steward of what the Lord has made you to be responsible over. “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matthew 25:23). Jesus said, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5). Beloved a lot of the mistakes you have made and will make in the future can be avoided if you would just listen and act on the counsel given to you. Just make sure it goes along with the WORD OF GOD, the BIBLE, THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES VERSION !
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me your peace. Amen.
