Without consultation, plans are frustrated,
but with many counselors they succeed.
The last few days have been wonderful as I’ve read through Proverbs 11 to Proverbs 20. Humility is a reoccurring theme throughout the book, and Solomon also encourages us to seek the right counsel. Asking for help requires us to be humble, and this can be tough. Finding the right people to ask can sometimes be tougher. Take this to God in prayer. He will lead you to right people. If you’re acting on your own God-given wisdom, chances are you’re not far from the best counselors: God’s Word, Church leaders, Spirit-led sermons, devoted friends, loving spouse, wise parents, and good Christian books. Isn’t it amazing where a little wisdom can lead us?
Here are some more nuggets from King Solomon’s wisdom mines:
Proverbs 11:13 Trustworthiness
Proverbs 12:27 Diligence
Proverbs 13:11 Earning an honest buck
Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart and our health
Proverbs 15:1 Avoiding anger
Proverbs 16:1-3, 9 God directs our steps
Proverbs 17:27, 28 Keep your mouth shut—much of the time.
Proverbs 18:12 Humility before honor
Proverbs 19:1 Better to walk with integrity
Proverbs 20:13 Don’t sleep too much
What about you? What treasures are you digging up in God’s Word?
