(Pro 25:12 KJV) As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
We are here in the middle of a bunch of comparisons, trying to get across to us how important it is to listen when someone shares wisdom with us. Good advice is good. It is valuable, but only if it is applied.
So? Think back and spend a moment wondering how your life would be different if you had listened a little better. Imagine the future and what a difference it can make.
