God’s wisdom in Proverbs: Listening to advice

HPAC Bulletin – 24/10/2021

Proverbs 3:11-12
11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
and do not resent his rebuke,
12 because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in.

Proverbs 9:7-8
Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;
whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.
Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.

Proverbs 12:1
 1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but whoever hates correction is stupid.

Proverbs 13:13-14
13 Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it,
but whoever respects a command is rewarded.

14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
turning a person from the snares of death.

Proverbs 15:33
33 Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord,
and humility comes before honour.

Proverbs 18:2
Fools find no pleasure in understanding
but delight in airing their own opinions.

Proverbs 24:5-6
The wise prevail through great power,
and those who have knowledge muster their strength.
Surely you need guidance to wage war,
and victory is won through many advisers.

Proverbs 25:12
12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
