Counsel – introduction and bible study guide

Introduction:
In a age when the profession of counseling is exploding – so is the plight of mankind in his attempt to reconcile past, present and future.With so many resources on the subject of counseling and the myriad opportunities available to receive counsel – why is it that man still searches endlessly for a reason to exist?

Suicide, lying, rape, stealing and murder are increasing at an unprecedented clip. There must be something more than a man-centered attempt to study the workings of the inward man and his motivations to act accordingly.

There is. God created man. He knows his every thought, desire and end. God has much to say about His counsel and our obtaining it from Him. His counsel leads to hope and each man must search Him out to find it.
