Everyone’s a counselor

  
R.C. Sproul has a book called Everyone’s a Theologian, and the key idea behind that title is that everyone has a theology of God, from the atheist to the Zoroastrian.  And then there’s good theology and bad theology.  

In the same way, everyone’s a counselor.  Whether on purpose or not, we give counsel to people every day.  People share with us what’s going on in their lives, and with our reactions and interactions, we guide them in their thinking, like it or not. So, just as everyone should seek to have a right theology, so should every Christian seek to be a better counselor.  

Here are some excellent resources to get you started:

Since we’re all counselors, may we seek to do it well by His grace, for His glory, and for our joy.
