Those Who Listen to Wisdom Live Securely
"For the waywardness of the naive will kill them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them. But he who listens to me (wisdom) shall live securely And will be at ease from the dread of evil." Proverbs 1:32-33
A couple called into the Dave Ramsey radio show today. They were 30 years old. The wife had been home on maternity leave with their first child and they were calling to announce that they just paid off all of their debt, including their house. The husband also told his wife during the call that she did not need to go back to work and could stay home with their child. Of course, the wife was crying. Then Dave asked them how they did it, including paying off their home. The young man’s answer was simple. He said they followed Dave’s financial advice step-by-step.
This couple chose early in their marriage to seek out wise financial advice. They were willing to listen to the advice and make the adjustments to live by it. They couldn’t life like all their peers and still accomplish this amazing feat. They chose to not to eat out. They didn’t buy new cars or things they didn’t need. It was difficult in the short-term, but now they will go into the future financially secure, without many of the stressors so many people experience, because they were willing to listen to wisdom. In addition, they can enjoy the money they earn and bless others with it.

Who do you know that can give you wise biblical advice in that area?
Are you willing to pay the price to follow the wisdom so that you can live more wisely and securely?
