“The plans of the righteous are just, but the advice of the wicked is deceitful.” (Pro 12:5)

Everyone will give you advice if you ask for it. Many will give you advice even if you don’t. It is important to look beyond the advice to the one who is giving it. It is by your fruit that you will be known. Look for the fruit of the advisers around you.

There is a need to discern advice in all aspects of your work or business life. It’s as much about looking at the source as it is about deciding whether the advice is good or not in its own right. The advice of the wicked will be deceitful even if it looks on the surface like good advice.

Quick Prayer: Help me discern righteous advice from the deceitful. Amen.
