Guidance 101

He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way. (Psalm 25:9)

It is in humility that men seek the Throne of Grace. Proud men do not seek the Throne of Grace, they have all their answers. The humble seek God's guidance. These are men who distrust themselves, but not God.

Listen to no man who fails to listen to God. ~ anon
