Wise Counsel

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance. Proverbs 1:5

Talk to the president or CEO of any company and he or she will probably tell you how important it is to have a dependable and trustworthy board of directors.

No one is “omnicompetent.” Great leaders understand that they don’t understand everything. So they surround themselves with people who can guide them in their decisions.

The same is true in other aspects of our lives. Even the very best of us has blind spots and areas of weakness.

We need people in our lives who can help us make good decisions and who can stop us from making foolish choices.

We’re always on dangerous ground when we decide we don’t need to listen to anyone around us.

Of course, the best type of person to listen to is someone who offers godly counsel, based on God’s Word, the Bible.

Do you have godly people in your life you can trust to … 

Correct you when you are going in the wrong direction?

Know the details of your spiritual and moral life?

Give you frank and honest advice?

Pray with you about your greatest struggles and challenges?

Surround yourself with people who will guide you wisely. And make sure they have a close connection to God.

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
