Wisdom is found in those who take advice.
Here is a second helping of counsel from Proverbs—advice about …
Laziness: If you are too lazy to plow, don’t expect a harvest (20:4).
Worry: Worry weighs a person down (12:25).
Bad companions: Don’t follow the ways of the wicked … Stay away from them … (4:14-15).
Misconduct: Avoid evil and walk straight ahead. Don’t go one step off the right way (4:27).
Pride: Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (16:18).
Arrogance: Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are … (3:7).
Jealousy: Peace of mind makes the body healthy, but jealousy is like a cancer (14:30).
Integrity: One who walks in integrity will be safe, but whoever follows crooked ways will fall … (28:18).
Advice is only as good as the amount
of it that’s put into practice.
