Wise Counsel

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
Proverbs 13:20

Talk to the president or CEO of any company and they will tell you how vital it is to have a dependable and trusted board of directors. Great decision makers, great leaders, know that they don’t know everything. They surround themselves with wise counsel.

The same is true in our lives. We need to have a personal board of directors–people we can trust to help us make the right decisions. Too many of us, though, have the uncanny ability to ask the wrong people the wrong questions; and as a result we make the wrong decisions and do the wrong things.

Instead of falling into that trap, surround yourself with people who will help you navigate the maze of life. If you don’t already have a personal board of directors, start putting one together today. Make sure these people have a strong connection with God. Find those people who will energize you and motivate you to make the right decisions.

But don’t just form this group. Actually use your personal board of directors in your decision making process. Understand that there are people God has placed around you who will guide you towards the right answers. And use them to help you get the most out of your life.


Lord, thank you for bringing people into my life to point me towards you and your will for my life. Help me keep a strong board of directors and utilize them appropriately. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
