A known speaker once said, “To the graduating class, I bequeath the good advice that I gave to the students of former years. It really is as good as new, for a very few have ever used it.”
Advice is an instruction that helps guide a person in his or her decision in life. It is sad to know that only a few people are listening to advice no matter how good that advice may be. In this “SELFIE” generation, many children no longer obey what their parents are advising them – they want to live their lives independently instead.
Proverbs 19:20 (NIV) says, “Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.” What a promise from God! His word is for our own good. It will make us wise.
It is for this reason that we, parents, need to continuously give advice to our children and, as believers, we need to listen and do what the Word of God says.
Loving you in Christ,
