Seeking advice is essential for success. If you want a long, satisfying marriage, observe couples who’ve been happily married for many years and ask for tips. If you plan to train and teach your children to be responsible, productive, God-loving adults, find parents who’ve “been there, done that” and get their advice. Before making a major purchase or booking a hotel for your next trip, check online reviews. Our activities, purchases, plans and decision-making will be more successful if we first tap into the wisdom and experiences of others.

That is what King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 15:22: “Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.” We all want to be successful and we all need advice at some point. When facing a major decision, let’s be wise and humble enough to seek advisers for counsel. God can use their input to help us be successful.

Prayer: Father, we admit that decision-making can be difficult. Lead us to the right people who can give us wisdom to succeed. Amen!

    That is so true. Too bad so many people choose not to ask or heed the advise of somebody with more experience. The smart ones recognize their need for advice and follow it.
