The Fool is Right in his Own Eyes

Proverbs 12:15 says; “The way of the fool is right in his own eyes, but he who heeds wise counsel is wise.”  Many today feel that they need to go out and make their own decisions and establish themselves in our society.  God calls us to seek Him and His perfect wisdom first.  He is the great counselor and the gatekeeper of all the knowledge of the universe.  However, this proverb should give us clarity of the importance to seek out wise and godly counsel on this earth.  There is wisdom in godly numbers.  Be careful in seeking worldly wisdom as it can lead to more heartache and shame.  But, wisdom for surrendered Christians can help us on our temporary journey in life that is just a moment in comparison to our future eternity in Jesus Christ.  Don’t hesitate to seek counsel from the godly after spending time with God.  That’s why we have the body of Christ or the church.  May God bless you this week as you seek His counsel and the wisdom of godly men and women.
