Proverbs 13 – Isn’t it ironic?

“Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it,
but whoever respects a command is rewarded.”

Proverbs 13:13 NIV

Thanks for joining me for today’s devotional thought. You know that one song “Ironic?” There is a line in there that says “it’s the good advice that you just didn’t take.”

Well we could debate what the real definition of “ironic” is, that’s not what the devotional is about.

When we know we should have taken that good advice…it’s only in hindsight. It’s only looking back with regret for making a decision and realizing we should have made a different one.

When you are given instruction or advice, do you scorn it or do you at least consider it? Respecting that command and advice might save you lots of regret in the future.

What are your thoughts? Have you had advice you wish you had taken and accepted? What was it? What advice do you have for others that you had to learn the hard way? Leave a a comment below.
