Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
For a person visiting a place he has never been before, he must get some information about the area to those who are familiar to the place. I bet, tourists do research first of a country’s culture and traditions, mode of transportation, climate, etc. before they pack their bags and explore. Getting some info and researching is pretty much needed to be guided along the way to get rid of major mistakes.
When I was a kid, I hate to hear my mom or dad scolding me. I want to do things my way. I hate being corrected. Now that I am grown-up, I’ve come to realize how important it is for a parent to correct his/ her child’s bad behavior. “Strike the iron while it is hot”, they say. This is one way to lead a child to the right direction. This is one way of showing how our parents love and care for us.
Compare a teenager who is being guided accordingly to another teenager who is taken for granted and allowed to do everything he wants. Most often, those who are not directed are those who usually suffer from addictions, who fall easily into temptations, who are much prone to accidents. They are almost always resentful and blame their parents for lack of attention and affection.
I was told “ask if you do not know”. There is nothing wrong in inquiring. If we have problems that seem so hard to carry alone, share it to God and share it to godly persons who can counsel us rightfully of the proper things to do.
Admit it. We need to be guided. Do not do all things your way because sometimes what you’re doing is not how supposedly it is to be done. Listen to the advices of the elderly that you may save yourself from frustrations, pain and suffering. And most of all, allow God to lead you. He knows what to do because He is an expert especially when it comes to the most important subject called LIFE.
