Scripture: Proverbs 18:2 A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart. (NKJV)
Nugget: We’ve all had people in our lives where we “couldn’t tell them anything”; the people who just wouldn’t listen to wise counsel or advice. These same people are noted here has being foolish; they only hear what they want to hear & only express what they feel is right.
It’s not that the people have to always agree with you, but seeking & hearing wise counsel are characteristics of those who seek to grow & to change. We all must be receptive to growth & understanding.
Are you trying to grow today, seeking delight in understanding? Do a self-check. Let’s stay on the path to growth: both learning & sharing wisdom.
Quote: “A fool despises good counsel, but a wise man takes it to heart.” -Confucius
