Read the scripture again. We are told that the book of Proverbs is full of wisdom for us to follow. Here are adjacent proverbs that contradict each other. Which one do we follow? When we are not sure what advice to follow; it causes us to have doubts about what we should do. In the next three days, we will look at some Bible characters who struggled with doubt.
Questions for further thought:
1. When have you received conflicting advice?
2. Where do you turn to for discernment in this scenario?
Challenge: Our three pillars of wisdom are the Bible, prayer and our faith-believing peers. Jesus promised we would have the Holy Spirit that would intercede in our life after His resurrection. The Holy Spirit uses each of these to direct us on our path. Let the Holy Spirit guide you when you are not sure which direction you should go.
