Wise Counsel During Solomon’s Time

The term “wise counsel” during Solomon’s time referred to people who would give you advice from their years of experience. They had gathered much information on a myriad of subjects. This prepared them to be wise counsel. That is to say “to give advice that would bring you skill in living.” But today, we can gain an even more sure counsel than the knowledge of man. We can have access to the knowledge of the Almighty!

You Need to Seek Out Wise Counselors

To glean the knowledge of God you need to seek out wise counselors. Today that would refer to people who allow themselves to be clean vessels of communication for the Spirit of God. Advisors who know God intimately will be able to give you the mind of God; for He will provide it to them for your benefit. And the more advisors you can find the merrier you will be!
“There is Wisdom in a multitude of counselors” means the more counsel you get from Spirit-filled advisors, the more you will find of the Holy Spirit. Therefore where there is a multitude of counselors there He is (wisdom)!

Steve Curington grew up in a Christian home and graduated from North Love Christian School in 1984. After high school, Steve started a 10-year addiction to alcoholism and cocaine. After a serious car accident, Steve found complete sobriety through his relationship with Jesus Christ. After his recovery in 1996, Steve began Reformers Unanimous, a faith-based addiction ministry. What started as a humble, Friday night addiction class with four regular attendees in Rockford, Illinois, grew to a class of more than 300 people from the community and then spread to other churches across the country and around the world. The founder of Reformers Unanimous International (RU) died suddenly on October 30, 2010. Mr. Curington, a husband and father of five children, was only 45, but he accomplished more in his 15 years of ministry than many do in a lifetime. We know his work, his writing, his voice, and his reach will live on.
