The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the Lord, but I hate him, for he never prophesies good concerning me but always evil” (2 Chronicles 18:7).

If the guy who’s always right is also the guy who’s always talking about repentance or judgment, here’s a thought:  repent and avoid judgment.

The solution is NOT to find a different collection of advisers who only tell you what you want to hear.  

Accuracy may hurt.

Truth may be ruthless.

But nobody needs encouragement built on a lie, however good it feels.
