The best counsel anyone can give or receive originates from Scripture, focuses on Christ, and encourages a person to trust and obey God. One does not have to analyze a psyche, nor should one even try. Neither must one become an “expert” of the soul, nor can he. One does not have to be a Bible scholar with a wall covered with certificates and degrees to minister God’s grace. One only needs to know Christ and to be walking according to the Spirit.”

—  Martin and Deidre Bobgan

Psalms 33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Romans 15:14 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
