Holy Scripture and Guidance

  In the book of Proverbs it is written, "Where there is no guidance, they fall like leaves; salvation exists in much counsel" (Prov.11:14). Can you see here the power of the Word, brothers? Can you see that what the Holy Scripture is teaching us? It safeguards us, so that we do not trust ourselves, so that we do not consider ourselves wise, so that we do not believe that we can guide ourselves. We need assistance. After God Himself, we need our guides.
