SEEK GOD’S COUNSEL!
“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.” Proverbs 12:15
AT HIS TABLE:
As Men of Honor we have learned to humble ourselves and acknowledge that we must seek counsel. We cannot allow ourselves to listen to our excitement, our impulses, or our own way given to us by reporters that are driven by the flesh. We must instead, listen to God’s words of advice, but often WE get in the way.
It is because of pride that we fail to listen to God’s counsel, which often comes to us through a wife, an outside family member, or even our children. Yes we are not led by them, but ideas, suggestions, and even the truth that we may not want to hear might come from them to aid us in our leadership and to improve our family and ourselves.
Many men resist this, because of pride! It is a man that is full of his own pride that resists God’s words of advice! Men we are not to lean unto our own understanding as it is written,
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
“There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12
THE TRUE RIGHT WAY IS…
There is a reason that God tells us these things, it is because he cares for us and for our families! God wants us to be Men of Honor, that will honor our God and our family. God wants us to humble ourselves and acknowledge Him in our decisions. So when we trust him, then we can be confident that all things will work out to our good, as we read,
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thine ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
