"I know Dad"

Often, I try to help my kids by sharing some wisdom with them. It may a better way to sweep the floor, solve a math problem, or handle a situation.

It’s great when my children receive my advice, but too many times I get this response,

“I know Dad.”

Apparently my kids already know it all and don’t need my help.

When we shut out wise people from our lives, we miss a deeper, wiser understanding of how things work.

One major issue is we often shut out the wisdom of God.

He is the Creator of the universe. He knows how everything works. Why wouldn’t we want to hear what He has to say?

We often don’t ask for wisdom because we think we already know. We think we are already wise, but the wisest thing to do is seek for more wisdom even if you already have some.

Proverbs 1:5 “Let a wise person listen and increase learning, and let a discerning person obtain guidance.”

Someone once said, “Everyone knows something I do not know; therefore, everyone is my teacher.”

When we already “know it all”, how can we continue learning? Next time someone has some advice for you, listen up even if you already know.

And make sure you check that wisdom with what God says because “No wisdom, no understanding, and no counsel will prevail against the Lord.” Proverbs 21:30

God’s wisdom is the best wisdom, and He is ready to give to those who know they need it.
