1 Kings 12:8
"..he rejected the advice that the older men gave him, and he consulted with the young men who had grown up with him..."
At 1 Kings 12:8 the king chose to ignore the advice he had been given by the older men and chose to listen to his peers. While it may be easier to get advice from a friend our own age, there are a lot of benefits to talking with older ones about a decision we are trying to make. Older ones can be a valuable resource of knowledge that can save us a lot of trouble. They may be able to offer practical advice from their own experience; experience that our peer's haven't had yet.
