Bad Advice

Nothing is wrong with getting advice from our family and friends. Proverbs 15: 22 (NKJV) says, “without counsel, plans go awry, but in the multitude of counselors they are established”. Evidently, there are benefits from seeking advice (counsel) from persons. However, we need to know that, even though we take advice from our counsellors, we still need to ask God to guide us.

Gift vs Purpose
