Advice or Agreement?

In my years as a pastor, I have discovered one thing about those who seek my counsel. More often than not, those who come to me aren’t seeking my advice. Rather, they come seeking my agreement with their already formed plans. As a result, I’m often not told everything. There are times when further details emerge that were not divulged, which would have changed my counsel.

“The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him” (Proverbs 18:17).
