"He is on the path of life who heeds instruction,
But he who ignores reproof goes astray."
Much of the wisdom I thought I had as a young person turned out to be quite foolish. If I had heeded the advice of the more mature, I would have avoided the pain of poor choices. By the grace of God, one of the greatest lessons He taught me through my stubbornness is to remain teachable. I don't want to be just a hearer of His word, but a doer" (James 1:22). This, I know, is the path to joy and peace in my life.
