Seeking Advice

I admit I love dispensing advice. It’s always my desire to share what I’ve learned from making wise and foolish decisions so others don’t have to pay the tuition. But it occurred to me today that there’s a downside to giving advice based on my experiences. I’m looking through the lens of my life not yours. Your circumstances, capability, and choices are different than mine.

Yes, the Bible says that “in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” It’s wise to get another opinion, but make sure you have soaked the concern in much prayer, totally dependent on God for His viewpoint. Once He speaks, stop asking. Move forward in faith. His advice won’t backfire.
