We won’t get far in life without wisdom and common sense. And we see that both are gifts of God and that God Himself uses them. Yet so often, we find ourselves doing anything but listening. Wisdom is available and calling to us from everywhere. (Proverbs 1:20-21) But often, we’re either not paying attention or ignoring her in favour of our ill-considered choices. However, wisdom is a companion of God, and he has offered this companion to us. It is worth our time to consider the ways in which we continue to ignore her.
Sin will not come to you saying, “I am sin.” It would do little harm if it did. Sin always seems good and pleasant and desirable at the time of commission. Oh Get wisdom! Get discernment
No man is uneducated who knows the Bible, and no one is wise who is ignorant of its teachings.
At this point in history, when everyone seems to be yelling all the time, the words of people who speak rarely and with intention carry the most weight. Watch for those who recognize the power in reserving their anger for truly important causes. Often these voices are the ones pointing us in the right direction. There is an ocean of wrongness and offense on the Internet; trying to correct it all is like trying to empty the ocean with a thimble. It is impossible and not what God has called us to.
Don’t give simple solutions to complicated situations. Sometimes what people are entangled in goes far beyond what we see. Slow to speak, quick to listen.
