Where do you get your advice from? What do the people in your life believe? How do they live? Where you get your advice will determine how successful you are and how well you do, especially if it contradicts the Word of God. God says that if you want to be successful, don’t take advice from people who don’t believe in Him. We are to ignore counsel that may seem good, but goes against God’s Word. When it comes to areas of our life that concerns morality, finances, marriage, raising kids, etc. and such, we should look to God’s Word for our answers and constantly meditate on it. Psalm 1:3 says that if you want true success, don’t allow the counsel of the ungodly lead you astray. Only then will you find true happiness that lasts and true success in every area of your life.
