A word from God's Word: "A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will listen to wise counsel."1
Benjamin Franklin said: "Well done is better than well said."

Jacob Riis: "When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did itóbut all that had gone before."
As God's Word, the Bible, says, "A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will listen to wise counsel."1
And such are the ways of God in helping to "shape" us into the person he sees we can become.
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please give me a wise, understanding, and listening heart to learn your ways of grace, truth, wisdom, and love. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
