Proverbs 11:14

To whom do you look for guidance?  Your coaches, your teammates, your parents?  Who helps you make good decisions?  What would be the consequences of your not seeking the wisdom of others?  Let's look to the Scriptures for an answer.

In the book of Proverbs at chapter 11 and verse 14 Solomon writes, “Where there is no guidance, the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory.”  Obviously none of us want to fall, so where does this guidance and counsel come from?

We get guidance from our coaches, from our teammates, from Bible reading, from church attendance, from family and friends.  We need guidance to guard against falls, both individual and corporate. 

It says that in abundance of counselors there is victory.  Let's see our coaches and teammates as our counselors during competition today.  Let's trust that in such an abundance as we have, there will be victory. 

You have the counselors to achieve victory and to avoid the falls that come from a lack of guidance.
