Elihu waited patiently to give his counsel.  We can gain insight from how he confronted Job.  There is a time to confront others in counseling and some ways to do it correctly. 

1. Informed - Elihu listened to all the others and quoted them.  Proverbs 18:13
2. Inspired - Elihu said he was inspired by God. 2 Timothy 3:16
Impartial - Elihu did not take sides with anyone. James 2:1-13

When I need to confront someone I must first be sure that I have accurately heard the situation.  I must then speak according to the precepts and principles of God.  I must not show respect of persons.

Walk with the Lord and give counsel wisely!!!
