Proverbs 1:29-31 (KJV)
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Too often we may think we may know what is best, but we are terribly wrong. All true wisdom comes from God alone. We can blame no one else when we choose to reject His instruction, and things go wrong in our life. We may temporarily seem to be having everything going well, then before you know it, everything falls apart. We blame God and others. Yet we do not take accountability for our own actions. In the end we reap the fruits of our actions, whether they be good or rotten.
