Bible Study- The Heart of a King- lesson 3

Lesson 3 is about learning to be careful in who we take advice from. Sometimes even when they mean well our loved ones will steer us in a direction that isn't the one God would have us to follow. Its not human nature to pick the harder course, even water follows the path of least resistance but by following that path we don't grow strong.

Personal Reflections
1. Are you careful about who you listen to and what advice you follow? I usually will consult a variety of friends and family and pray about the right choice. Thats not to say I always take it but I try at least.

2. Look up Scriptures that talk about seeking Godly counsel. Write each Scripture reference down and share with the group.
Psalm 1:1 says How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers

Proverbs 13:20 says He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm

Proverbs 14:15 says The naïve believes everything, but the sensible man considers his steps

My favorite is Jeremiah 29:11 which says For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. In the New International Version it goes like this For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
