Seek Wise Counsel – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1872 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from a Larry Burkett, and it is, “A wise person seeks much counsel…a fool listens to all of it.”
Seek Wise Counsel
You would think that wise people would not need to seek additional counsel since they already have a level of wisdom that is more than most people. The opposite is true. A wise person continues to gain wisdom throughout their life because they are wise enough to know that they are not wise enough.
There is another crucial distinction between some who is wise and someone who is foolish. The wise person can discern which counsel adds to their wisdom and which counsel is not wisdom. Those who remain foolish do not have the discernment to distinguish between good and bad counsel, so they accept it all, which adds to their foolishness.
The attributes of a wise person are that they know which counsel to keep and which to discard. God expects us to be wise. If counsel does not line up with the precepts found in God’s Word, it needs to be discarded.
So don’t bother correcting mockers;
they will only hate you.
But correct the wise,
and they will love you.
Instruct the wise,
and they will be even wiser.
Teach the righteous,
and they will learn even more.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom.
Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.
Wisdom will multiply your days
and add years to your life.
If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit.
If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.
