Proverbs 11

Without guidance, a people will fall,
But there is victory with many counselors.

Proverbs 11:14

There is a saying “it takes a village to raise a child.” Maybe you have experienced the blessing of having many people around you loving you, guiding you, helping you, giving you advice, nudging you back in the right direction. I would like to say that I have always been thankful for the people around me who have guided me, but of course there have been (and are) many times when I haven’t wanted to hear it! So reading vs 14 this morning was a good reminder to me that guidance and advice from others is a good thing and without it I would be lost!

Thank you Jesus for putting people in my life who speak honestly and truthfully to me about the realities of who I am and the world that I live in. Help me not to turn away from guidance and advice, even when it is hard. Thank you Jesus that you have given us Your Spirit and your people to love and support us and show us more about you. Amen
