When family and friends ask for your advice, what do you do first?
Do you just offer them some advice, or do you pray about it first? I believe God wants us to ask Him for guidance before we do anything else. Sometimes I try to help that person without praying about it first. I have discovered that I am not very effective at times when I do this. I would have been more helpful to that person, if I would have prayed first and asked for God's guidance before offering advice. Sometimes God surprises us with answers that we would not have considered on our own without his guidance.
Father, Please help me to remember to come to you first when others ask for my advice.
