Stubbornness Is Stupidness.

OBEDIANCE

“A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.” Proverbs 28:13

One thing I have learned is that stubbornness and stupidness goes hand in hand.

These people are very seldom successful in life because they refuse to listen and refuse to admit they are wrong. Oh yes we may see successful people who are rich today, but in the end they lose it all because they refuse to accept listening to others. They believe they are the smartest while being the stupidest.

 

I have seen many people continue to make the same stupid mistakes over and over again. I have to wonder what planet they are from.

For example I have tried to explain to some people to eat before going shopping, try to figure out how much they need to spend and take just a little bit more just in case. Then I see them going to the store hungry, buying a lot of junk food and going way over budget and then cry because they are short money at the end of the month.

On the other hand I have seen humble people who are willing to listen, apologize when they make mistakes and master a skill very quickly.

Personally I find the best way to learn is to make a lot of mistakes because then you learn how to become better by learning to fix the mistakes.                                                                 

There is no middle ground with Jehovah. Obedience brings blessings while disobedience brings curses. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                  

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me an obedient heart such as was and is in Your loving son Jesus. I sincerely ask this in His obedient name. Amen.                                                                                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. This is why the Father warns us not to lean on our own understanding, but to trust in the words of the Lord. He also says there is a way which seems right to us, but its ways lead us to death…(Proverbs).

    Stubborn attitudes are not virtuous in the eyes of the Father God!

  2. great point!

    • I say the difference between a wise man and a fool is that a wise man learns from his mistakes and corrects them. A fool refuses to admit he was wrong and is dammed to repeat them
