“Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise.” (Proverbs 13:10, NLT)

Taking advice — particularly when it differs from our preferred course of action — is difficult. Can you recall any time when you did take inconvenient advice to heart?  Do you remember how the mere act of heeding that advice saved you a heap of trouble and conflict?

Perhaps the hardest advice to swallow is “unsolicited advice.”  However, even in such cases, consider the heart of the source. Someone who has your best interests at heart will not only give you their best advice, but will personally stand with you in their counsel.

Wise up!  Don’t let your pride get in the way of a saving word.  – Luther
