My advice: Take advice


"Any government which does not have advisors is not a true government.

"From whom do we learn? From the government of the house of David. He had advisors, as it is written (Divrei haYamim I 27), 'And Jonathan, David's uncle, was an advisor, a man of understanding and a scribe.' If the government of the house of David had advisors, how much more so would advisors be good for ohter people!

"One who listens to advice is wise. It is also written (Mishlei 11), 'And salvation comes through much advice.'"

(Midrash, Pirkei d'Rabbi Eliezer 3)

Have a great day,
