When people came to Pastor Chuck distraught and heartbroken, seeking his counsel for their personal dilemma, he simply replied, The best thing I can do is give you Gods Word rather than my own thoughts or opinions. When you need guidance, when mans counsel has left you confused and discouraged, go to the Word of God because God has already given you His counsel.
