Can you be trusted to give wise counsel?
Does your Husband ask and use the things you discuss to help with
Planning and implementing your advice?
The word tells us it is wisdom to ask for wise council.
Who is on your board of advisers?
I want to know in my marriage that my Husband trust the advice that I give him.
I try to be informed on what the subject matter is, so I can give an,
Opinion based on some facts. As I can just be emotional and speak from
my heart only. And this is part of my point we need to hear the portion
that does come from the heart
. We just cannot take just this portion and leave out the facts.
I made a few mistakes in this arena when I was younger;
Now I know the wisdom to have heart and facts.
There are so many ways of doing things out there in our marriages and homes.
We can read and be informed until the cows come home.
But we must remember that the Bible must be our main source.
My older Brother years ago once told me this;
Roxy if you will not learn to take constructive criticism you
will never grow or be wise.
I want to grow and be wise, but I must be careful in who I ask
Ask the Lord, whom you can go to for sound counsel.
Ask the Lord to help you to be able to give wise counsel.
The time is now to grow in wisdom and not be following every wind of doctrine.
Just because someone might have a bestselling book on a subject
Does not mean this should be your new belief system.
