There are many people that are quick to give you their advice, however is their advice worth taking onboard?
We need to really evaluate which advice to listen you, is it coming from above or is it coming from below.
God is all knowing and all powerful, this is why when we get knowledge from him it is called an understanding because we fall under his knowledge. God himself has an overstanding because he knows all.
There are people in this world who try to position themselves as God and claim to have an overstanding of things and try to advise other people to do the same:
Romans 1: 28 -32
28 Furthermore, because they did not think it worthwhile to keep knowing God fully, God delivered them to degraded minds to perform acts that should not be done.
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and viciousness. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, God- haters, haughty, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to their parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Although they know God's just requirement- that those who practice such things deserve to die- they not only do these things but even applaud others who practice them.
There are many religions in the world that would try and give their advice as to why their way is the right way, but whose advice are you going to take? If you look at these religions, they have a moral code to live by, but are morals enough? They have logical systems to follow but is logic enough? They have good works that they practice e.g helping the poor, but are good works enough?
These so called gods are either statues made by man as a result of folklore and legioned or one man's idea, passed on through oral tradition or a result of looking at the power of nature and worshiping it instead of the creator of nature. So whose advice are you going to take? The advice of a dead statue, the advice of a man with a hidden agenda or the advice of someone who worships the elements?
I would rather take the advice of the God who created the materials that was used to make the statue, the God that created the man who had the hidden agenda and the God who created the elements. This same God who proved his love for me personally and every other human being on the planet, when he came down to where we were, to experience life how we experience it. To suffer how we suffer, to die how we die, but who rose from the dead to show us that he has power over death, so that through him we can live! That's the God I want to serve and that is the advice I want to take:
Romans 10: 8 – 11
8 But what does it say? "The message is near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart." This is the message about faith that we are proclaiming:
9 If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For one believes with his heart and is justified, and declares with his mouth and is saved.
11 The Scripture says, "Everyone who believes in him will never be ashamed."
Unfortunately even in our Christian circles there are people that will try and give their advice, but as with all advice you have to look at the foundation of where the advice is coming from. So for instance you have the Jehovah Witnesses who teach that the Watch Tower is God's holy organisation on earth and they are the “little flock” that Jesus spoke about. They also teach that Jesus was not God in the flesh but the Arch Angel Michael.
This is why as believer we should study the bible for ourselves so that we can get the right advice, because if you do not people can bring plausible augments to you that will draw you in and drawing you in it will take you further away from God
2 Timothy 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth
Hebrews 1 : 10-13
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation
If this scripture is correct how could Jesus being the Arch Angel Michael?
So whose advice are you going to take? Be care even in so called Christian organisations and movements, make sure you are getting a correct understanding instead of an incorrect overstanding!
There are many people that will try and give you advice about your financial future, however before you take their advice, ask yourself the question,”Do they have any experience in what they are talking about?” if they have then ask yourself “Were they successful in it?” If the answer is no, then do not take their advice onboard.
People have their opinions about Network Marketing and they have their opinions about Nutrition and if you take onboard other people's opinions you will never be able to form your own.
Reliv is a vehicle that if used correctly can take you where you want to go, however if you do not learn to drive it, you will not even get passed your driveway.
You have to be teachable in order to grow a Reliv Business and you have to be ready to go to work. So make sure you are listening to the right advice because the right advice could be the difference between success or failure.
