Sadie Robertson of the hit show Duck Dynasty gives five practical life savers that can deter you from a lifetime of regret. Sadie is currently on a 46-city-tour with Winter Jam where she gets to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ to sold out crowds all over the United States.
Robertson encourages her listeners: “God will speak to you if you ask Him to. He will give you eyes to see and ears to hear.” She also encourages people to listen to the Holy Spirit when you see a person you know you are supposed to witness to or encourage. She gives a great reminder to all ages that we should be avoiding gossip and that starts with refusing to listen to it.
Whether you are a youth pastor or a senior pastor, take three minutes of your day to listen to these five simple reminders. Sometimes the most profound wisdom can come in the simplest of forms.
• If someone is drinking and they ask you to get in a car with them, say no.
• If someone asks you to drink and you don’t want to drink, you can say no.
• If the person you are dating wants to go farther than you want to, say no.
• Let God lead you
• If someone comes up to you and wants to tell you something juicy, tell them you don’t want to know.
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. – Proverbs 11:13
