You follow the next sign — the “hospital” sign. [Ed reveals the “hospital” sign on stage] Isn’t it comforting to know that 24/7, if you are sick, injured or don’t feel well, that there is a trained staff in hospitals to help you, to bring you back to health. You can just take the exit and go to a hospital. The same is true in relationships. Sadly, most marriages and most single adults wait too long to get help, to go to the hospital. I’m talking about Biblical Christian counseling. God has wired a lot of people who have the gift of counseling to help us, to give us coaching.
Proverbs 15:22 says, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed.”
What is keeping you from going to Christian counseling? What’s keeping you from it? Is it your pride? Is it your ego?
Maybe you think, “Oh, I can just figure it out myself. I’m a self-made man. I can pull myself up with my own bootstraps. I can do it.”
However, I’m telling you that you need to go to Christian counseling.
This past Wednesday, my ten-year-old son walked in and announced to me that he wanted to take up the sport of golf. I like golf. I play maybe twice a year, but it’s not my passion. The first words out of my mouth back to my son kind of went something like this, “You want to play golf? Ok. I’ll just get you some golf lessons. You need to learn from someone who knows what they are doing.” I have seen people who try to play golf, who didn’t start young, who didn’t start right, who learned the wrong way and they have some funky swings.
Ed Young Creative Pastors – They can’t play golf. To learn the right way, you have got to learn from someone who knows what they are doing. My response was that quick. I said, “Son, we are going to find you golf lessons.”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Creative Pastors
