The Proverbs Challenge - Day 13
Many of the verses in Proverbs 13 - at least the ones that I remember while writing this - had to do with wise men (and women) listening to advice, discipline and instruction. There is a rebellious streak in each of us. It's the old sin nature that wants to go its own way.
The verse I chose as my verse from the chapter for today is v. 16
Every sensible person acts knowledgeably,
but a fool displays his stupidity.
I guess I picked this one because how we act shows whether or not we have listened and taken to heart advice, discipline and instruction. Hearing instruction is just the first step. We have to make changes in our behavior if we are going to be wise in what we do.
Here are some other great verses from Proverbs 13.
