Ron: Do you want to win at life? Surround yourself with wise people.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Many times the book of Proverbs in the Bible says wise people have a leg up on life. They’re more savvy and able to rise above. Proverbs 24:6 says one reason for that is wise people surround themselves with wise people. “In an abundance of counselors,” it says, “There’s victory.”

Hey, do you want to excel in life? In your marriage? Your parenting? In your stepfamily? Even in business? Surround yourself with wise Christian followers. Mentors, authors, online teachers, ministry leaders, a small group of trusted friends and let them speak truth into your life. For there is where you will find victory. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
