Acts 27:1-12 And when it was decided that we should sail for Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan Cohort named Julius...
think about it.
What was Paul's travel advice? What happens when you ignore those who have the wisdom of God?
Well Paul is now on his way to Rome via ship, and the journey is dragging out and getting longer and more dangerous with each passing day. It's at this point that Paul, not a seasoned sailor, speaks up and warns the centurion that he (Paul) believes and senses that continuing the trip would be dangerous, even to the point of loss of life. (verse 10). No one pays any attention to Paul's words, however, and as we'll see tomorrow, a wreck is indeed in the making.
So how do we determine when or if it's appropriate to step up and give our advice? What about when someone gives us advice? How do we determine if it's godly and should be followed? Tami W.
