Renungan harian alkitab, 1 Kings 12 rabu; ” advice from foolish friends, nasihat dari teman yang bodoh”

1 Kings 12:8-10 (NKJV)  But he rejected the advice which the elders had given him, and consulted the young men who had grown up with him, who stood before him.

And he said to them, “What advice do you give? How should we answer this people who have spoken to me, saying, ‘Lighten the yoke which your father put on us’?”

Then the young men who had grown up with him spoke to him, saying, “Thus you should speak to this people who have spoken to you, saying, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy, but you make it lighter on us’–thus you shall say to them: ‘My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s waist!

Raja Rehoboam, anak Salomo, sungguh ceroboh meminta dan mengikuti nasehat dari teman teman masa kecilnya, teman teman yang tidak bijaksana dan tidak berhikmat.

Para tetua yang penuh hikmat dan kaya pengalaman, tidak dia dengarakan, tapi nasihat bodoh dari teman -temannya dia jalankan.

Para pembaca terkasih, hati hatilah dalam meminta nasihat, jangan meminta nasihat dari  kumpulan orang tidak berhikmat, bergaulah dan mintalah nasihat hanya dari orang orang beriman dan penuh hikmat.
