By Don Ruhl

The proud believe they already know what they need to know. Therefore, they do not seek advice. However, those who seek advice have found wisdom. As King Solomon said,

By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised is wisdom.
(Proverbs 13.10) 

Pride leads to problems. The well-advised find wisdom and wisdom brings success.

Questions:

  • Do you seek wise counsel?
  • Do you think you are better than the average person?
