    Accept wise counsel if you want to be a wise ruler.
  • Saundra Anderson
    I agree with Matthew Henry.The counsel of the old men were to speak gentle and kind words instead of brute force suggested by the young men.We should listen to wise counsel of those tha ha ve gone before us!Rehoboram did not follow God s plan,but instead he followed his own desires in dealing with the Hebrew people.
  • Patrick
    the better are the words or counsel of people who were there before you.If you are wise don 't wait to learn from your own mistakes but listen.People who can tell you good are fewer but the big team Have nothing good for you at all.
  • Grey justice
    if GOD SAYS YES WHO CAN SY NO!! Thanks JESUS.
  • Grace
    I don 't fully agree with you. If you do except our LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, the will of God will change , as you will have eternal life.
  • Davies mekgwe
    If i do not want to be born again and accept Jesus to change my life .This connot chage God and will also not move God.It is my own good to live the life required by God.eg.God is the author of marriage and it is not an idear of the world.if you decide tomorrow and marry a woman,you do not favouring God but you a fulfilling his word as person with Jesus mind and thinking.
