The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. – Proverbs 12:15
A series of proverbs with this same theme:
Proverbs 12:13-25 (excluding 21 & 24)
Being corrected can feel like a slap in the face. To not receive advice, though, could very well end in a worse outcome than not saving face. We need to be open to other people’s wisdom. They might have insight where we don’t. To be totally secure in our own opinion is a dangerous place to be in.
Thanks for reading! Pete.
