wisdom is the objective practice of applying God’s Word to your life. Wisdom, simply defined is, knowledge applied. If the knowledge is not being applied to your life, then you’ll be a hypocritical dispenser of truth who has not been changed by the truth you’re dispensing.
You have to walk in the Spirit. You must be able to see more than what is presented. If you cannot discern what is not being said, then your inability to see the invisible things needed to help a person will not be accessible to you and the person will not be helped.
5 – Mature – A desire to counsel a person does not mean you can counsel a person. You must have a measurable, proven track record of solving your own problems. Your life is “Exhibit A” of what a God-centered person is. You present yourself as an example of a transformed life.
6 – Compassionate – There is no place for harshness in counseling. Patience, long-suffering, empathy, kindness, and a gentle spirit are some of the necessary elements when restoring others. Without compassion, it’s not Christian counseling.
