The scripture calls for those who are wise to judge. The church must raise mature godly balanced ministry to bring forth proper judgement to the body.

Before one gives counsel

> A wise man will choose godly mature proven counsel around them. What is your track record? Are you known among those who exercise wise discretion? Moses the prophet of God assembled those noted for their acts of wisdom, not their words of wisdom. Then appointed them as judges over the people of God. One wise in [deed] will be wise [indeed]. Do your word match up to how you live your life? Are your words to the wise only for someone else?
Deuteronomy 1:12-13 How can I alone bear your problem and your burden and your complaint? (v13) Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.

> Servanthood is the position of godly wisdom. The wisdom of a king is not weighed by his power or position but rather in how he rules.

> Godly Wisdom seeks the better good of all, Its words are weighed on the balance between those who are hope-worthy and those who tend toward contempt, they then weighs that discretion on how it will affect generations still to come.

Ephesians 5:15 See that you walk circumspectly, not as a fool but as wise.

Proverbs 4:19 The path of the wicked lies in darkness; they that walk its path do not comprehend, why they stumble.

Wise judgement discerns to whom to speak and of him to withhold counsel. “Don’t be naive to believe that all desire a word to the wise. They do not!

Proverbs 9:8-10 Do not reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you; (v9) give instruction to a wise man , and he will still be wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning (v10) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding..
