Gather Your Wise People

This morning I remembered how important it is to have the right people in your life who know God’s word, who possess wisdom, and who care about your journey.

Many, many times in life, you’ll reach some kind of fork in the road. You’ll have a decision to make. You won’t know what to do. That’s why God put us together with other believers who can seek God on our behalf and offer wisdom to us.

Consider Proverbs 11:14: Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Who are those people for you? Find them! Acknowledge them! Invite them over for dinner to counsel you! When you find a wise person, welcome them into your struggle. Ask for their input. And think about having 3-5 of these people you might regularly consult when you need wisdom about a career move, a relationship decision, a parenting choice, a move, or anything that requires a shift in what you’re now doing.

Where there is no counsel, the people fall;
But in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14
