inspiration: reading through the Bible...
i've been reading through the One Year Chronological Bible.
right now i'm into Solomon's reign, so I'm reading a lot of Proverbs.
a couple that i wrote down yesterday dealt with pride vs. wisdom.
i know that sometimes i tend to take matters into my own hands rather than heeding the advice of friends, mentors, and even worse, God's Word. but as i've grown in my relationship with Christ, i rely more and more on doing what is wise rather than what is "acceptable" by the world's standards.
here are a couple i wrote down:
"When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
"Pride only breeds quarrels,
but wisdom is found in those who take advice."
Where are you getting your advice and wisdom from - God's word or the world??
