A Word To The Wise

A city is exalted by the blessing provided from the upright, but it is destroyed by the counsel of the wicked (Proverbs 11:11, NET).

Exactly who counsels in a wicked way? It is not likely that you know of a person who does such; generally, people who give counsel do so because they believe it can help. The problem is the foundation from which they give counsel. “How blessed is the one who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand in the pathway with sinners, or sit in the assembly of scoffers! Instead he finds pleasure in obeying the LORD’s commands; he meditates on his commands day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2, NET).
