Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. (Proverbs 15:22, New International Version)
Theme: Rejoicing and Thanksgiving
This week we will focus on the disciplines of Counsel, Creation, and Sabbath. We will start with Counsel.
Accepting that there are benefits to seeking good advice is noncontroversial. Seeking advice is very much a part of our daily lives, especially in our interactions with experts and professionals (e.g., health care professionals, teachers, and tax advisors). However, we are sometimes reluctant to seek advice because it makes us appear ill-informed or weak. As a result, we sometimes miss opportunities to thank God for benefits he has decided to give us through our interactions with other members of our community.
Our Bible passage today reminds us why it is wise to seek good counsel. Please study the passage and consider the question below.
Do you practice giving God thanks for the advisors he has placed at your disposal?
