In this episode, the team discusses wise counsel and who we should listen to in real life. The LDI Crew also considers characteristics of people who may be considered wise counsel. 

Each episode features a leading question, quote of the week, and a Growing Together segment geared at imperfect leaders who are seeking development in their leadership potential. 

Quote of the Week:
“True wisdom and knowledge cannot be found apart from Christ. Colossians 2:3 tells us that in Christ is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Christ is wisdom made flesh. ‘And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption’ (1 Cor. 1:30).

“In addition, giving advice, no matter how helpful, apart from the truth of Christ can often encourage a recovering Pharisee to add your suggestion to an already long list of things to do to make life work apart from the grace of Christ. Our idol-producing hearts are quick to take any helpful advice and put all our hope in it. We are quick to make a solution into a savior.” Christina Fox, The Problem with Good Advice, The Gospel Coalition,
