Proverbs 20: 18
Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war
There comes a time in life when tough decisions must be made. This is when it is good to have friends that share a mutual interest of success.
Have you ever known anyone who would always ask you for advice and then they seem to do the opposite? I sure have. I used to know several. They would ask person after person until they found someone who agreed with what they wanted. Bam! They had justification of their actions. Then shortly thereafter they and everyone else would know it was the wrong action to take. Most probably knew what was going to happen and that is why they told them not to do it. If you pose an action and the majority tell you not to do it then don’t do it.
Balavagga: The Fool: 61
Should a seeker not find a companion who is better or equal, let him resolutely pursue a solitary course; there is no fellowship with the fool.
