“Abundance of Counselors"

Blessings folk!

It is an exciting truth.
A city rejoices when it goes well for the Righteous.
A city is exalted when it is blessed by the Righteous.

It does beg the question.
Does it go well for the Righteous now?
Consider our major cities.
Consider the smaller?

How do we as Righteous “bless”?
How do we exalt the city?

Pro 11:10-14

When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,
And when the wicked perish, there is joyful shouting.

By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
But by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.

He who despises his neighbor lacks sense,
But a man of understanding keeps silent.

He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets,
But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.

Where there is no guidance the people fall,
But in abundance of counselors there is victory.

We as Righteous must…
- not despise our neighbor, such lack sense
- be understanding, keep silent, do not spread evil and dissension
- not be a talebearer revealing secrets
- be trustworthy, concealing matters and not spreading such
- provide the guidance of the Lord
- join with fellow Righteous in bring forth the abundance of the Counsel of the Lord!

The Evil//Wicked?
- they will tear down by their mouth
- they will despise their neighbor
- they will not have understanding
- they will be talebearers and revealers of secrets
- they will be untrustworthy
- they will bring guidance and counsel of wickedness

Which are we?
