1. Pray

For starters, smart girls pray before they take advice — when seeking advice on tough matters. They know it’s unwise to act at once upon advice from others. Even from a well-meaning source. They still seek first the approval of our Creator (YHWH).

Sapphira, the wife of Ananias, didn’t pray first. And the result of her choice was grim. Sapphira agreed to her husband, Ananias’ scheme — and lied of the profit from their sale their field. She took his advice and dropped dead. Because of lying to Peter. Tough, eh?

So, you must be a smart girl and seek Our Creator first — on any advice you receive from others. Our Heavenly Father is all-knowing, mankind is not.

Research Acts 5:1-10

2. Check Motives

Smart girls always check the motives of the person giving advice. These girls can discern the motives of others. Which helps them to find if the advice received is legit. Now, this is not you being paranoid, this is discernment. 

Now, Absalom, King David’s son, didn’t check the motives of his adviser, Ahithophel. This was because this adviser had given his father expert advice in the past. Yet, this adviser gave foolish advice to Absalom.

Ahithophel’s motive was to help Absalom usurp King David’s rule over Israel. So, he advised Absalom to gain the support of Israel by having sex with his father’s concubines. Sex on the palace roof, so everyone could see it. Yes, ladies, that happened for real. Now, would you consider that wise advice to take? Or even an excellent motive?

(Psst… check out the sources for this post below)

Bathsheba, King David’s wife, knew the motives of Nathan the prophet were pure. This was because Nathan repeated the vow David made to her of making her son Solomon king.

So, when Nathan gave her a strategy for Solomon to become King. Bathsheba took his advice. And her son Solomon became the ruler over Israel, after King David’s reign ended. If she had not taken Nathan’s advice, she may have died in the general clean-up after Adonijah’s accession (Women In The Bible, 2018).

Anyway, be a smart girl and always check the true motives of others — before you take their advice.

3. Seek Wisdom

Smart girls know how to seek wisdom from The Living Word — to see if the advice they receive is legit.

Let’s look at Sapphira, the wife of Ananias, again. Before taking her husband’s terrible advice, she should have refreshed her memory of the 9th Commandment. That says our Creator forbids lying. If she did this, she may have escaped such a terrible end.

So, ladies, be smart and seek The Living Word for wisdom before you take anyone’s advice on tough matters.

Research Exodus 20:16
