Lesson 60

Are you one to listen to instructions? Are you one to submit to authority?

“Now then, my sons, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.

Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not ignore it. (Proverbs 8:32-33 NIV)

To truly obtain wisdom, you need to be at a place in your life to LISTEN. Are you a good listener? Do you absorb what the other person is saying or are you too busy formulating your reply? God does not want you thinking of what you are going to say next. He wants you to listen to His words and absorb them.

Do you keep God’s commands? Not just the ten commandments. Do you keep all His commands including the Great Commission?

God says that if you listen to His words, follow His commands, you will be wise and will be blessed. Jesus said in Luke 11:28, ‘He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.’

Today, focus on where you are in your walk. Are you a listener of God? Are you humble enough to forget your own needs, wants, and desires and follow God’s commands? Are you willing to give up everything for Him?
