Seeking Counsel Proverbs 20: 5 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
From this passage you see 4 very simple things to consider when seeking counsel.
Counsel is in the heart – so it is not something superficial, but something lodged deep in the heart of men.
Counsel is like deep water – so you are going to have to dig for it and pump it before you get to enjoy its cold, clean, refreshing quality.
Counsel has to be understood – there is often very profound wisdom in it that is not readily apparent – so listen well, clarify uncertainties and be willing to apply what you hear.
Counsel has to be drawn out – it doesn’t run freely like an artesian well, so you have to know where to find it and you have to stay with it until you get what you need.
