The wise man Solomon reveals that the position taken by those who shield themselves by the mantra at issue is wrong. He encourages in Proverbs 19:20 to “Hear counsel and receive instructionâ¦â Hence persons ought not to be establishing a habit of refusing to take heed to correction or counsel from others. Instead, rebuke and correction from others should be appreciated and valued. Proverbs chapter nine verse eight shows “â¦rebuke a wise man and he will love thee.â Strikingly, this text implicitly shows that it is foolish for anyone to despise, lightly regard or resist judgement. “Hear instruction and be wise, and refuse it notâ indicates Proverbs 8:33. It is not falsehood to state that a life led solely by the promptings of what you think is right is disastrous. There are people with whom you co-exist who have gained wisdom through experience and reading and are able to instruct you in the right way. The benefit of submitting to these people is glorious. In following expressed wisdom you will obtain a prosperous life (see Eccl 7:12), which includes honour (see Prov 8:18), strength (see Prov 7:19), protection (see Eccl 7:12), happiness to parents (see Prov 15:20), peace (see James 3:17) and other blessings which you will acquire as you live. What is there to lose? Many people may desire to live their lives as they please, but I am convinced that none wants to be a fool. “Hear counsel and receive instruction that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.â â Proverbs 19:20.
