We particularly need to listen to older people and children.  They all have stories to tell that enrich the mind and the heart.  Children simplify things, often with brutal honesty.  Older people bring the perspective of their long years on issues.

From Proverbs 12:15:  “Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to advice.”

  1. This is great advice! I told someone recently we can learn a lot from kids. And of course older people have a wealth of wisdom. Unfortunately we live in a society, at least in the US, where the elderly are not respected as they should be. Growing older is frowned upon. Staying young is glorified.
