Jake watching his brother sled down the hill

Jake is standing watching his biggest brother sled down the snow covered hill. He is watching him to figure out the best way to sled this hill. He is making sure that he does not crash at the bottom. Jake is learning from his brother that is experiencing life before him.

If we could all be so wise then we could save ourselves such grief and heartache in this life. Can we as adults learn from others? Can we listen to the wisdom of those who have gone before us? Can we watch and see what path would be the safest so we don’t crash?

Today, consider those who have given you advice, those you have watched crash at the bottom of the hill and try to learn from their mistakes and make a wiser choice.
