Click this link to hear an audio version of the below text narrated by SOTH member Jerry Rhinehart:


Proverbs 12:15-16 (NIV)
15 The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. 16 Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult. 


What action does humility take in these verses? What action may you need to take?


Holy Father, You are wise and all-knowing. I am not. Forgive me as I try to figure things out on my own and try to do things my own way. Help me to listen to Your Spirit as You guide and coach me through Your Holy Word and through the people that You place in my life. Help me to discern when You are speaking to me through others and let me reflect on the advice that will bring me closer to Your will. Show me Your ways, Lord. Humble my heart and lead me to find the nuggets of Your truth and be open to hearing Your message in all the ways that You present them. In Your Holy name. Amen
