Proverbs 11:14

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Making Decisions

Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.

Solomon writes in Proverbs 11:14, Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory. Even, Solomon, the wisest man who has ever lived knew that people who try to make a go of life without surrounding themselves with good and trusted friends and advisors, are an accident waiting to happen. With all the complexities of life, it is impossible to always know the right thing to do or the right thing to say or the right course to take in every circumstance. Because we all have personal blind spots, we need to have people in our lives who can see what we cannot see. If we want to have victory in our lives, we will need to surround ourselves with an abundance of godly counselors. Think about it.
