Advice


“It takes a lot of wisdom, a lot of mistakes, and a lot of prayer to figure out when to listen and when to offer advice…I have often heard, that it is safer to hear and to take counsel, than to give it." (Susan Alexander Yates, Thomas à Kempis)

“We sometimes give people excellent advice only to learn that it does not apply to them and is therefore not very helpful. All who offer counsel from God’s Word should take care to thoroughly understand a person’s situation before giving advice.” (Life Application Study Bible,

Job 5:17)

“Only if one is self-assured in his spiritual life does he readily gives advice to others whom he imagines are “not so well instructed” in the ways of God.” (Dynamis 8/19/2013)

“When you know a great deal, the temptation to share it by force is strong. Resist! Except when invited to lecture, and in actual emergencies." (Suzette Haden Elgin)

“When dealing with people, it is more important to love and understand them than to analyze them or give advice. Compassion produces greater results than criticism or blame.” (Life Application Study Bible, Job 26:2-4)
