Scripture: Proverbs 23:9 Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. (NLT)
Nugget: There are just some people who will not heed to wise advice. You can speak to these individuals & be the best person to listen to their issues/problems, but the bottom line is they will not take wise counsel.
I’ve learned over time, the best thing to do is to pray for these people; God can definitely handle things better than we can. Of course, He knows the person’s situation better than we do & can lead the individual in the right direction.
Don’t waste any precious time on the people who will not listen, instead allow God to do His will & His work.
Quote: “The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.” -Hannah Whitall Smith
