The Importance of Getting Counsel/Receiving Reproof from Proverbs

Updated: Nov 9, 2019

I use this little tool especially with young pre-marital couples – encouraging them to seek counsel as a lifestyle for the rest of their lives from anyone who has a solid marriage.

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.” Prov. 12:15

“Through insolence comes nothing but strife, But wisdom is with those who receive counsel.” Prov. 13:10

“Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed.” Prov. 15:22

“He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof Will dwell among the wise.” Prov. 15:31

“He who neglects discipline despises himself, But he who listens to reproof acquires understanding.” Prov. 15:32

“Listen to counsel and accept discipline, That you may be wise the rest of your days.” Prov. 19:20
