Do Not Isolate Yourself #324

A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment. (Proverbs 18:1)

The proverbs of Solomon give us insight into the desires of the heart. The person who obstinately refuses sound advise isolates himself. His motive becomes clear as he contends against sound judgment. He is more interested in satisfying his own interests and desires than accepting wise counsel. Pride prevents us from accepting the wise judgments of God’s word. Many rage against the Bible. By doing so they isolate themselves from God as they insulate themselves with the foolishness of their prideful unbelief. Humble yourself before God and follow His wise judgment. By doing so you will have ready access to every spiritual blessing in Christ, instead of being isolated from God in the folly of pride and unbelief.
