Seek Advice from as Many Wise Advisors as Possible
Proverbs 11:14 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors there is deliverance.
Where there is no guidance, a people falls: The Hebrew word here (תַּחְבֻּלוֹת tachbulath) that is rendered guidance refers to giving or providing advice, counsel, and direction, as to a decision or a course of action. People (עַם am or עָם am) here is simply a general reference to a body of or a group of people. Falls (נָפַל naphal) is used in the figurative sense in that a people with no guidance will eventually suffer a downfall, come to ruination, and meet a disaster.
but in an abundance of counselors there is deliverance: Abundance (רֹב rob) means many or numerous, a lot. Counselors (יוֹעֵץ yoets) refers to someone that gives or offers advice about problems, directions, decisions, or what course of action to take. Deliverance (תְּשׁוּעָה teshuah) here means that wise counsel can bring people security by delivering, rescuing, and saving them from a foolish, wrong, or bad decision or course of action, as well as helping them overcome problems.
A foolish, wrong, or bad decision can result in minor problems to the point of overturning one’s life. So, the importance of seeking out a wide range of advice or counsel on a matter is vital. Whether we are one person making a decision for ourselves, or for our family, or we are one who has many depending on us for wise counsel, we should seek advice from as many wise advisors as possible, to keep us from making unforeseen mistakes.
