Seeking Council

“ Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.” (Proverbs 1:5)


“The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15)


“Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.” (Proverbs 19:20)


Faithfulness of Friend

“Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friend’s counsel that comes from the heart.” (Proverbs 27:9)




It is obvious that Barney cares about Andy and feels close to him., so why doesn’t he ever follow Andy’s advice?


What is the best advice you ever received? Did you follow it? Why or why not?


Have you ever had a friend give Godly wisdom that you didn’t want to hear, but proved to be what you needed to hear?


How would advice from a Godly man or woman be different from advice given from someone who is not a believer?


Do you have a best friend? What do you admire most about your best friend?
