Proverbs 15: 22 Without counsel, plans go wrong, but with many advisers they succeed.
I’ll admit it’s not always my instinct to solicit the opinions of others before acting. As the writer points out in this verse, this can be a problem. With age I’ve gotten better about inviting input from people I trust. Their questions aren’t a form of opposition, but rather an opportunity to think more clearly about my plans. Questions have helped me avoid mistakes and anticipate problems before things blow up in my face. I’ve learned this… the hard way.
