"The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to ­advice" - Proverbs 12:15. As children, we learn to ask for help if there’s something we aren’t sure about. We raise a hand in the classroom; we bring questions to adults who might have answers for us. We want to learn things, so we ask for help, information, and advice as we need it.

For many of us, this tends to change as we grow older. We start believing that being independent and figuring things out on our own is most important. We become less inclined to ask for help or advice because we don’t want to seem weak.

Oftentimes our own experience or expertise may be enough. And not all advice is good advice, as many of us learn along the way.

But our verse from Proverbs today gives a helpful reminder that it is foolish to become wise in our own eyes, to believe that we always know what’s best, or to assume that our way is always right.

Asking for advice or for help does not make us weak. It expands our ability to discern complicated situations. Often someone who is wiser or more experienced can see or understand the situation better than we can. And sometimes God puts people in our lives specifically for that reason.

Jesus Himself was not afraid to ask for advice or wisdom - particularly in prayer to His Father in heaven. Will we follow His example?

Pray with us

Father, keep me from thinking I always know what is best. Give me the humility to ask You for wisdom and to seek advice from others who are wiser than I am. Amen.
