THE COUNSEL OF THE WICKED
I remember talking with a young man in jail. He was telling me that his family had hired a lawyer to get him out (whom I always heard was a good attorney) but he wasn't sure he wanted to trust the lawyer. I asked him why.
He responded that the other guys in his jail block didn't trust this lawyer. He said THEY didn't think he ought to let the man represent him. And then he said, "They ought to know because they'd been to court plenty of times."
And I thought to myself -- you've got to be kidding me!There's a reason why these guys are in jail! They weren't smart enough to STAY out to begin with, and now that they're in... they aren't smart enough to GET out! AND THESE were the men my friend wanted to rely on for advice?
· Don't walk in the counsel of the wicked
· Don't stand in the way of the sinners
· Don't sit in the seat of mockers.
Don't listen to these people. They'll just get you to doing and thinking things that are going to hurt you.
