The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little. Proverbs 10:20 New King James Version
Wisdom is having knowledge and putting your knowledge into practice. Knowledge comes from learning from your experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green
The wise give instruction that is valuable for your life. They have been blessed with this by living Godly lives. Yes they make mistakes but they learn from them and are humble enough to admit it and repent. Repent means not only sorrow for what you have done or said but to stop doing it. This only is achieved with meditation with Jehovah and the power of the Holy Spirit within them to correct the wrong. You need not be old (although it helps) because I have met many old fools. If you desire to avoid many hardships in life it is prudent to be respectful towards the wise and listen and obey their insightful advice. Yes be respectful with them less they walk away from you. When you do get into a bind it is astute to go to them for advice on that matter as well. Do not forget that they have made mistakes as well and learned from them. When you have become wise do not lord it over others but be quick to help them as you have been helped.
Pride and foolishness go hand in hand just as pride and arrogance does. Joseph- Anthony: Green
The fools are the ones that keep on repeating the same folly over and over again and never learning their lesson from the experience. Fools are also proud and arrogant. They believe they are Mr. or Mrs. Know It Alls. I have met many that keep on repeating the same folly for years and know it but are too proud to change or admit they are wrong.
They are also schemers and scammers. When they speak look out because they are out to con, deceive and manipulate you to get something from you for nothing. You follow the advice of the wicked at your own peril, it will always led to ruin.
Speaking from personal experience every time I listened to and obeyed the voice of the wicked it has had disastrous consequences and they stood there and laughed at me. It stung bad because I thought they were my friends.
Can you remember when you followed Godly advice and it helped you? Can you remember being stung by following the advice of the wicked?
Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the help of the Holy Spirit to always be a wise voice in the midst of so many loud hollow sounding gongs so as to best be able to provide wise advice in such a place so desolate of Godly wisdom. I humbly request this in the name of the one voice of truth and wisdom Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
