David conferred with each of his officers, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. 1 Chronicles 13:1 New King James Version
When you need advice where should you go?
Go where the best advice can be found.
It has been said that an alcoholic will listen to the advice of a recovered alcoholic more than someone who has a piece of paper hanging on the wall.
Why do you think that is?
Could it be because they will listen to someone who has gone through what they are going through so they understand them?
So too it is with all aspects of life.
If you want good advice why not seek it out in Godly Christian councilors that have gone through what you are experiencing now?
This is why it is a sin for Christians to sit on the sideline when they see others suffering what they have gone through and do nothing to help them. Yes we are to help others as we have been helped. If no one helped you through your difficult times think of how much you would have appreciated some help. Then do something about it when you see someone else going through their trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.
On the flip side there is a prevailing belief amongst the younger generation that the older generation is useless and holds no wisdom that can help them. That is why they suffer in silence so much.
If you are young and need help do not be arrogant and too proud to seek the advice of the older generation. Do not just whine to them but listen to their advice and obey it.
Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun. Ecclesiastes 7:11 New International Version
There is an old saying:”The more things change the more things are the same.”
That means that okay maybe your grandma or grandpa does not know how to use a computer but events that occur in your life are the same as that which has occurred it theirs.
“God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters.” J. H. Jowett
Listening to wise council has helped me tremendously to deal with some very serious issues in my life. If it were not for their Godly advice I do not think I would have made it through those extremely difficult experiences.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with many wonderful Godly wise mentors which have guided me through numerous difficult times. I humbly ask my Love that you open my eyes to the opportunity to emulate them when I see other brothers and sisters in need of Godly wisdom, compassion and encouragement. I sincerely request this in the name of the best mentor ever Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
