Memorise: A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: Proverbs 1:5

Read: Hebrews 13:7 (KJV)

7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

Bible In One Year: 2 Samuel 17-18, Luke 21:1-19

MESSAGE:

As a young adult, you need to have someone to talk about your fears, challenges, hopes and aspirations. It is very important to have someone who is older, wiser and can be able to correctly advise you when it comes to important decisions of your life. There are times in the life of a young adult when there is an overwhelming urge to talk to someone who can relate to what you are going through and will understand without judging you, while also proffering a solution that will just be right for you. At times like this, it is advisable to prayerfully seek out a responsible adult who is wise and mature enough to mentor you, to listen to you and to also advise you.

When choosing someone to talk to, you need to be careful. You must choose someone who has sound Christian values, someone who will not derail you spiritually and take you away from God’s word. Whoever you choose should be able to sharpen you up and make you wiser. He/she should help you make the right decisions and not the wrong ones.

Key Point: Talking to the right people will help you get farther in life faster. But talking to the wrong people will slow you down or even derail or destroy your future. Choose wisely!

Hymn 10

1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a Friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our ev’ry weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

3. Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield You;
You wilt find a solace there.
