Proverbs 27:9 – A Friend’s Sweet Counsel

Today’s Reading: Ezekiel 16:43‐17:24, Hebrews 8:1‐13, Psalm 106:13‐31, Proverbs 27:7‐9

Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
 and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.”

As I move into a new ministry environment, I want to be and find sweet friends.

Apply: I want to ask those close to me to give me earnest (nephesh – soul or life) counsel.  I also want to be a man who gives this freely to those close to me.

How do you initiate earnest counsel with your friends?
