In our Bible Reading today, King Rehoboam asked some older men for advice. But Rehoboam did not like what the older men told him. So he refused to pay attention to these men. Later Rehoboam?s kingdom had many problems.
Sometimes we do not like advice from our parents or grandparents or teachers. But often older people have wisdom that will help us. If you have a problem, it is good to ask a mature Christian for their advice. Pay attention to their opinions. Use their wisdom to help you with the problems you are facing.
Paul reminds us in Colossians 3:16a to pay attention to wisdom. ?Let the teaching of Christ live inside you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and counsel each other.? When we learn from other Christians, then we have wisdom we can share with others.
Maybe you are facing some problems today. Share them with a mature Christian. Then pay attention to their wisdom.
