We live in a very seductive world, a world that is full of advise from various people about various topics. Some of this advise is good and some bad and with the growth of technology and the internet, this has given us even more access to more advice.
However the one piece of advice that is critical to every human being is the spiritual advice that they get, because this is the advice that will effect a person’s eternity.
So it is important that a person follows the right advice. The Bible says that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”
Psa_111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
In the Proverbs it says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge”
Pro_1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
So here through David, a man after God’s own heart and Solomon the wisest King that ever lived, we hear God inspired advice concerning, Wisdom and Knowledge (or understanding)
Then in Proverbs 4:7 it says:
Pro_4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
So God has put his standard on advice and if we follow it then we will be directed correctly, which ultimately leads to him.
The problem occurs when man does not follow the advice of God, but they now start following the advice of man. This leads to spiritual death no matter how sincere the person is who is following it.
So you have the Jehovah Witnesses that are following the advice of the Watch Tower.
You have the Mormons who are following the advice of Joseph Smith
You have the 7th Day Adventists who are following the advice of Ellen G White
You have the Muslims that are following the advice of Mohammed
You have the Hindu’s, Sikh’s, Buddhist’s and plethora of other cults I could mention, all following the advice of a man, all sincere in their belief but all sincerely Wrong!
Our eternal destination is solely dependent on whose advice we choose to listen to. There is a war going on and it is the biggest and longest war that has ever been fought, and that is the war for the human soul. However, Jesus already won this war 2000 years ago on the cross, but there are still millions of people who remain behind enemy lines.
One of the main strategies that an enemy uses in a war is the strategy of propaganda, putting out false information to try and confuse the masses as to what is really going on. A good example of this is how Hitler used propaganda in World War II. Where do you think he got the inspiration to do this from? The father of lies, who has been using the same strategy for 1000’s of years, confusing the masses to believe false religion.
Joh 8:44 You belong to your father the devil, and you want to carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and has never stood for truth, since there is no truth in him. Whenever he tells a lie he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies.
This is why God was so strong on Israel about the sin of idolatry, because that was the biggest piece of lying propaganda the enemy was using:
Exodus 20:1 Then God spoke all these words:
Exo 20:2 “I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
Exo 20:3 You are to have no other gods besides me.
So make sure you are following the right advice today and the best way to do that is to, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, who is the author and finisher of your faith!
Parallel Business Principles
There are many people that have their opinions about Network Marketing and Nutrition and many of these people are more than willing to give you their advice based on their ignorance.
This is the biggest challenge to someone building a Reliv business and that is the develop the ability to ignore the naysayers.
As an industry Network Marketing is probably the most misunderstood and most attacked industry out there. However it is also the industry that has produced the most millionaires out there.
People fear what they do not understand and a lot of times the first form of defense when afraid is attack!
This is why when a person is new to the industry or a company, it is so important to follow the advice of the people that have gone on before them, in order to avoid making mistakes and also to stay encouraged.
Unfortunately many people choose to ignore this advice and then they wonder why they have not been successful. So what do they do, they either attack the company they were with or they attack the industry. And story goes on and on.
Be different today and just follow the right advice!
