Proverbs 15:22 (ESV)
22 Without counsel plans fail,
but with many advisers they succeed.
*Many times we don't desire to discuss what we are going through with others. We hold it in due to fear, judgment, false image portrayals, or we may not know who to talk with regarding our situations. However, there is strength in numbers, and God wants us to be reliant upon each other and not isolated when we are dealing with things. You may be surprised to find that you aren't the only one dealing with that particular issue. Also, our areas of weakness were meant to be edified by those who are strong in that area. This is why we must be aware of what others are going through in order to help edify each other in love, and to make a positive impact on one another. Please, be wise though and consult with God on who to share your information with. Discuss things as God leads you to the right people, but do not allow fear to keep you from having the discussion. We must also learn to be discreet and open-minded with one another because we need to be open to hear from God on how to walk in love and counsel people, and not condemn them, discuss their business, and of course be kind. May we all find covenant partners, come out of our shells, and look outside of our clicks to love on one another.
