There are few things more valuable than good advice. It’s one of those intangibles that can help us grow and mature. Whether it be that we ask for it ourselves or it’s given unsolicited, listening to and accepting good advice is an act of humility that can be very rewarding.

Proverbs 19:20 (NKJV)

20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction,
That you may be wise in your latter days.

Proverbs 12:15 (NKJV)

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But he who heeds counsel 
is wise.

Matthew 23:12  (NKJV)

12 And whoever exalts himself will be [a]humbled, and he who humbles himself will be [b]exalted.

Fortunately, we all have people in our lives who are always full of advice.

Unfortunately, sometimes these people have too much advice. There are no humorous, fun, carefree conversations…it’s always advice.

If the advice is good, take it. But, remember this…

WATCH OUT FOR PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS HAVE ADVICE BUT NEVER HAVE ENCOURAGEMENT!

Watch out for people who always have an…

“If I were you…”

“I tell people all the time…”

“You don’t need to do this…”

You don’t need to do that…”

But never have a…

“It’s gonna be okay…”

“We all make mistakes…”

“I’m praying for you…”

Many times these people are more concerned with their EGO than helping you GROW.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
