In the Multitude of Counselors

Proverbs 11:14  

Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

No one can foresee every opportunity or every pitfall in life. This is especially true of the leader of a nation. Solomon stresses the importance of seeking counsel from a multitude of wise counselors in making important decisions that affect a nation. It is also good advice for individuals when facing important decisions that will affect their lives and the lives of their families.

For more about decisions and seeking wise counsel, see our article “Decision Making: 7 Steps for Christian Choices” and our blog post “In a Multitude of Counselors There Is Safety.”
