On giving Advice.
Jun 17, 2021

Before you counsel or advise anyone, heed this:

Meditation:

2 Tim 4:2

“… exhort with all long suffering and doctrine”.

“Preach the word; be instance in season out of season, reprove,  rebuke, exhort with all long suffering  and doctrine”.

This is a season for advice and counter advice in our body politic. Even in our daily lives, We find ourselves in situation where we are called to give advice, or receive same. Many tend to jump to or become eager talkers instead of thinking things through before they advise those who baldly need the guidance.

Before we give any admonition whether in a home, civic, professional settings or  when people preach, the Apostle Paul admonishes us to be proper as to timeliness or the appropriateness of our counsel. We all ought to be willing to speak power to truth: Rebuke if we have to, praise or affirm the individual(s) if we need to do so, and with patience and candor.

In whatever endeavor or pursuit, we ought to prepare ourselves- such as being well informed of the issues involved, so that our advise is not just empty and drawn out talks. In this way our counseling will not be just”talks about talks” but great and useful advice.

We can  take it from the secular world that states: “he that thinketh by the inch, but talketh by the yard, needeth to be kicketh by the foot”. This is not a biblical quote, but it makes sense. doesn’t it! It makes me believe that a good counselor must allow him or herself to invest the time to be well informed, to be  sincere,as well as  talk less and listen more. “Nuf Said“!

May God bless your days with wisdom, honesty and patience, as you counsel those who need your advice!
