The first irrefutable wisdom for wealth: Listen to good and wise counsels.
Proverbs 1:5: A wise man will hear and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
First, be careful whose counsel you listen and adhere to:
☑️1. Listen to the counsel of God who will never lie, change or mislead you, and do them.
☑️2. Listen to the counsel of those who has gone ahead of you – your parents, elders, and teachers/pastors, and do them.
☑️3. Listen to the counsel of those who have obtained what you are looking for and does them.
☑️4. Listen to the counsel of those who failed to achieve what you desire and avoids them.
But, by all means, stay very close to those who have what you need, and learn from their spoken and unspoken counsels.
Why must you listen to wise and good counsels? You do not have eternity nor need to waste your life trying to reinvent the wheel. You have a limited time here on earth. Maximize it as;
✍🏼1. Wise counsel shortens your learning curve.
✍🏼2. Wise counsel helps you avoid the pitfalls and errors of others.
✍🏼3. Wise counsel empowers you to take steps quicker and faster.
✍🏼4. Wise counsel makes you more effective and efficient in the processing of your vision.
✍🏼5. Wise counsel makes you more profitable in any investment.
✍🏼6. Like Isaac Newton, wise counsel makes you stand on the shoulder of others to see further and better.
So listen to these good and wise counsels today to make sweatless wealth;
🎯1. Fear God. Proverbs 1:7: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Wealth is entrusted by God. It is also God that gives the power to make wealth. So, fear Him.
🎯2. Listen to your fathers and mothers and obey their instructions. Proverbs 1:8: My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: God gave you earthly fathers to represent Him here on earth. Listen to them.
🎯3. Listen not to the enticement of sinners. Proverbs 1:10: My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. Listening to sinners who may have acquired illegal wealth will lead to untimely destruction. Refuse to listen to them.
🎯4. Do not join forces with sinners nor partner with them. Proverbs 1:14: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: You will lose everything if you do. Do not gamble with your life or wealth!
🎯5. Do not be greedy or in haste to make wealth. Proverbs 1:19: So are the ways of everyone that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof. Follow the process and the good path.
🎯6. Accept corrections and repent or rework. Proverbs 1:23: Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Change as you are corrected from the wrong you do.
If you fail to listen to wise and good counsel, you will end up destroying yourself. Proverbs 1:32: For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
But, if you choose to listen to wise counsel, you will live long to enjoy the works of your hands. Proverbs 1:33: But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
Therefore, listen to wise and good counsels, and do them.
Prayer. Lord, help me to always listen to wise counsels and to apply them. Be blessed. Stay blessed. 🙏🏼 ©️The Excellent Ministry 2021
