“Your testimonies also are my delight; they are my counselors.” (Ps 119:24)
A counselor is someone who is trained to provide guidance on personal, social, or psychological problems. A good counselor can help you sort out a myriad of concerns in these various areas of life, clarify the problems, and help find useful solutions. However, much of today’s counsel is built upon the premise that there is no God (or at the very least it doesn’t matter if He is) and that maximizing this life is the goal of life. These foundational premises have created a world where much of the advice we receive is faulty from the start and much of today’s counsel is merely a giant social experiment and we are the lab rats.
The Bible knows the truth and it will provide good counsel. Take advantage of the wisdom of those who espouse principles you can find in the Word, but be aware that not all guidance comes from the same foundation.
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.” (Matt 7:24-25)
