The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. (Proverbs 12:15)
Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.. (Proverbs 13:10)
We have entered the last week before Passion Week and we have three more Disciplines to cover: Counsel, Creation and Sabbath. We will cover these three Disciplines this week, and continue to reflect on our theme for this year, Our Identity. We will start with Counsel.
God clearly puts people in our lives to advise us, and discussions with other believers can certainly help with questions related to our identity. This is certainly one of the major benefits of fellowship. For many of us though, seeking counsel is a sign of weakness.
Please prayerfully reflect on the Bible passages above.
Something to think about:
Why should seeking counsel be an essential component of seeking a Christ-centered identity?
