We are urged not to walk in the counsel of the wicked in Psalm 1. Later in the Psalms, David expresses the need to wait for the counsel of the Lord, because His counsel endures forever.
Leadership should always provide counsel based on the word of God. When leaders provide godly counsel, several beautiful things occur.
1) God is glorified.
2) His people are built up in the faith.
3) Leadership is strengthened in righteousness.
4) The future is secured.
Let leaders learn today from the example of Joshua (Jos. 9), then pursue and provide godly counsel.
