“Pride only leads to arguments,
but those who take advice are wise.”
“The thoughts of the righteous are just, but the advice of the wicked is deceitful.”
“Good friend, follow your father’s good advice; don’t wander off from your mother’s teachings.
Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck.
Wherever you walk, they’ll guide you; whenever you rest, they’ll guard you;
When you wake up, they’ll tell you what’s next.
For sound advice is a beacon, good teaching is a light, moral discipline is a life path.”
Proverbs 6:20 -23

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.”
“What sorrow awaits my rebellious children, says the Lord. You make plans that are contrary to mine. You make alliances not directed by my Spirit, thus piling up your sins.”
