    And now the Jews start fighting against one another. Brother against brother. Only thing I can say that it must be Gods will to bring us to Jesus.

    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.
