DCLM Daily Manna 26 January 2019 Devotional by Pastor W.F Kumuyi
Topic: The Little Counsel
TEXT: Proverbs 19:10-20📜📜
KEY VERSE: “Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end” (PROVERBS 19:20).
These are indeed the last days. Unfortunately, many do not take into consideration things that matter for the future. The turn-table like life man lives presents him with no choice on earth than to have a share of almost every position or situation in life. However, obedience to God is the path to greatness.
Our text discusses different personalities and their reactions to circumstances as well as people surrounding them. We could envisage positions representing servitude, kingship, sonship, wife and motherhood as well as fatherhood. A man that is void of wisdom and grace is not fit to have a taste of heavenly goodies. It takes a king, one who is capable to be a ruler, to discern between friends and enemies as well as their rewards. It is only wise parents that would painstakingly train a child who in turn would become a man of prudence and diligence.
DCLM Daily Manna 26 January 2019 – The Little Counsel
Tiny drops of water makes a mighty ocean, they say. Counsel in life is inevitable and right counsel is what we are encouraged in God’s word to receive. “…that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end”. To be successful in family, ministerial or secular engagements, we need wise counsel. Age is a function of number. Thus at any point in time, man should be open to counsel. Obedience will make us act wisely and profitably.
The teaching of the scripture emphasises wisdom in obedience to counsel (Proverbs 12:15). Foolishness is always the hallmark of people who refuse or reject wise instruction from their parents, leaders as well as God’s word (Proverbs 15:5).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Obedience to God is a pathway to life.
