Today's Devotion

» Devotion - July 31, 2014

The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.

Proverbs 12:15


The nine-year-old boy was pitching for his little league team. It wasn’t going well, as he was walking batter after batter. When the team finally got back to the dugout, his dad said, “Pitch from the stretch.” Well, the boy didn’t know what the “stretch” was, and he was way too busy with his friends to take time to listen to his dad’s explanation, and so he continued to pitch from the wind-up. Not surprisingly, the rest of the game was a mess. The boy was foolish to refuse to listen to his dad.

How much more foolish if we refuse to listen to our heavenly Father! And yet, how often don’t we do just that? God says to forgive; we cling to grudges. God says to be kind and compassionate; we lash out in anger or deal selfishly with others. God says to seek his kingdom first; we focus on all sorts of other things, allowing God’s kingdom to go to the back-burner in our priorities. How foolish we are to refuse to listen to God, just as the little league pitcher was foolish for not listening to his dad’s advice.

But Dad was amazingly gracious. When they got home, he explained to his son what “the stretch” was.

Your God is oh-so-much more gracious! God continues to come to “foolish people” like you and me, and he keeps on teaching us. He keeps on assuring you and me that Jesus paid for our sins. He keeps on assuring us that he loves us. He keeps on assuring us that he is with us, guiding and directing us. He keeps on giving us wonderful advice about living this life so we keep a focus on eternal life.

Those who are wise listen to advice!

Prayer: 

O heavenly Father, continue to teach me your wisdom. Amen.
