How to have an awesome marriage#10

God created us interdependent, that is we are all pieces to a puzzle, organs of a body, or parts of an engine. On our own, by ourselves we have no chance of doing anything well, it just isn’t possible by God’s design. The definition of pride is, “I can do it by myself, I don’t need you”.

Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,

Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory.

Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.

Proverbs 13:10 Through insolence comes nothing but strife, but wisdom is with those who receive counsel.

Proverbs 24:6 For by wise guidance you will wage war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.

God is all wise, and He has given us much of His wisdom in His Word if we would read it, and if we would believe it, and if we would do it.
