Discerning of Counsel (Let God determine what is taken to heart) – Good leaders have become good at discerning wise counsel through experience. We must run counsel through a Godly filter so that we can find what that advice really looks like. Some of the best counsel may be spoken by the least likely person as God uses the people around us to guide us. The opposite can also be true. A person we thought would be the best counsel could give us ideas that we are not meant to work with. We must seek counsel and let scripture and God’s Spirit what finds its place in us. (1 Timothy 6:20) Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.
