Proverbs 4:5-7 tells us how important wisdom is.
Get wisdom, get understanding.
Do not forsake wisdom.
The beginning of wisdom is this – get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Avoid problems so you won’t have to solve them.
Stay out of the mess so you won’t have to figure out how to get out of it.
It is summed up in the old proverb: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
And this proverb: Don’t stir up the hornet’s nest.
And one more: Keep your head low, fly under the radar, don’t call attention to yourself.
Think before you speak, so you won’t have to eat your words or apologize for them. If you say something stupid, just stop talking at that point, for the likelihood is high that more stupid will come out.
Don’t tear down a fence until you know why it was put up in the first place.
Okay, that’s enough wisdom. Now if I can just listen to it the rest of the day.
May today be a day where we all get some needed wisdom.
Having the ability to empower and resource leaders to bear much fruit that lasts. Being a part of a team of friends and missional servants committed to changing the world.
