Without counsel we try to work things out in our mind about what is the best way to do things, we establish our own guidelines based upon what we have heard others do or say, and we practice what seems to be right in our heart and mind hoping that all will work out. Getting advice is not bad. We all need advice from time to time about the matters of life and there are many people that stand ready to give it. Seeking counsel is a good thing, but who gives us counsel is where we need to have concern. There are some people that would do everything else before they ever asked anyone to help them by giving advice. Proverbs 15:22 reads "Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established." Again, who gives us the counsel is where we need to have concern.
While there are many that can give advice, not all advice is good advice. It is very important to have the right counselor when seeking advice.
Jesus has already been established as the Wonderful Counselor because His advice has stood the test of time. His counsel is perfect!
Ask Jesus! Many tips of advice come from his wisdom and council!
