Walk with the Wise
A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise. (Proverbs 15:12)
I've had the unfortunate experience of seeing far too often a marriage that is in trouble and, rather than going to someone for help, rather than going to the elders of their church for counseling, they keep it to themselves, allowing their marriage to fall further and further into disrepair until it is too late, beyond salvaging. So often I have seen or heard of Christians who are exploring some new theology or contemplating leaving the Christian faith for a pseudo-Christian church or a completely different religion altogether. They have been studying this new theology or new form of Christianity for some time, never going to the elders of their church and seeking counsel, until they send an email to their church leadership, informing them they are leaving. Proverbs tell us that “a scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise.” Scripture condemns those who are too prideful to seek counsel or advice from those who are wiser. Don't be a scoffer. If you are struggling with something significant, be it theological or relational, seek the council of fellow believers, and especially of those God has placed over you for your protection and safety.
