Cats may have nine-lives but that doesn’t give them extra wisdom. Unless you need advice on sleeping or staying warm. (They usually fight over this space.)
Have you ever listened to the advice of friends and taken some wrong turns?
I certainly have. When listening to the Lord, even if steps are difficult or a bit unsure, they feel more confident. Having people who challenge you can be better than having multiple advisers or a rah-rah section.
I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
1 Corinthians 2:3-5
Test the advice. Don’t fear a challenge. Whether big or small decisions, put your trust in His leading. A powerful support team is the best way to go!

I was just missing a former employee/friend last night as I remember the way he was never afraid to challenge me. It was done respectfully, but I knew he wasn’t a yes man. Hard to find when you’re the “leader”. Good words, as always, Jude.
It can be interesting what others feel should be challenged. Sometimes its more like Job’s friends than one calling you into the greater things God has in mind. I do understand “coaches” but does that really have the heart to heart factor?
