“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. However, we can recall times when we did take hard advice to heart, and it saved us much trouble and conflict.
The hardest advice to swallow is “unsolicited advice.” 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 stand with you in their counsel.
Don’t let pride get in the way of a saving word. – Luther
