Provoking thought of the “Day”:
At the risk of offending millions, (How is that a surprise from me?):
I do not need the counsel of people. But I ABSOLUTELY need the counsel of God.
People’s advise may or may not be right. God’s is never wrong.
But here’s where people often have difficulty. They turn to people before they turn to God for the advise they need so desperately. When we do that we’re likely to get a handful of opinion mixed in varying degrees with “truth”. Isn’t that where gossip comes from?
And here’s the offence. I have found that people don’t go to God for His advise, simply because it’s easier to ask someone else. It’s so easy to rely on the things of this world. It’s no easy task to trust in faith.
