Sitting In The Gates
Sitting In The Gates (Ex 32:26);
"The elders gave counsel and encouragement at the gates of the city."
Proverbs 11:14 "For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers."
Keeping a watch on the city is an important job and the elders can alway protect the city if they work together.
Psalm 127 "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
The Key is working together and trusting God.
