Lent 2017 – Day Thirty-One
In this world, especially in Ghana, everyone will have a piece of advice for you but not all advice is good advice and not all advice will help you live well. But the fact of the matter is that you will not know what is good advice if you don’t listen to advice in general. So what I do is that I listen to the advice that is given and crosscheck it with the standard of advice that I need to live a good life. My standard of advice is the word of God. I crosscheck every piece of advice that I receive with the word of God to make sure that it is consistent with what God wants me to do before I act on the advice. That is the only way that I know I will live well.
Lord, help us to listen to good advice so we can live well.
