Counsel

counsel

Transparency is not a common trait and to ask someone for guidance along the way is usually left as the last resort.  Without guidance we know we will fall and once we take the leap, we realize that the more advisers we pull into our sphere of influence, the more security we have.

There are two biblical principles that to me, support reflection. First, Proverbs 18:17 states, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” We all have the tendency to accept the first version of what we hear, but the concept of “searching” carries the idea of talking and asking questions, but also thinking about the situation and the reconsidering of fundamental assumptions.

The second is simply the idea of seeking counsel. This must mean a certain amount of reflection and counsel has a strong bearing on decision-making.
