Alright, in a couple of weeks, I’m going to be 31-years-old. You know what? I always seem to go through a hyper-introspective phase as my birthday approaches.
I think about the ways that I’ve grown, the ways that I have faltered, the ways that I have changed, and the ways that I have influenced others (for good and for ill). I think about the goals that have been accomplished, the dreams that have been deferred, and the questions that have yet to be answered. There’s a question that has been on my mind lately, so I thought that I would get your input on it.
I’ve gotten many pieces of advice throughout the years – some of which I have taken; others, I have not. And that started to get me thinking: what’s the single best piece of advice that you’ve ever received? Did you take it? If you did, how did it change your way of thinking and living? How did it affect your walk with the Lord? If you didn’t, how would things be different had you taken the advice?
