Wisdom


Sunday, October 03, 2010

Wisdom is not held in reserve for a sharp select few.

Becoming wise requires self-discipline to learn and respectfully seek out wisdom at every chance.

Wisdom teaches you how to live life. It combines understanding with discipline.

Wisdom also adds a healthy dose of common sense – except that common sense isn’t and never has been common.

To become wise – you must learn to listen.

Wisdom is freely available to those who will stop talking and start paying attention – to God and his word, to parents, and counselors.

Taken from the Student Bible

Proverbs 12:1
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.

Proverbs 12:14
From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things, as surely as the work of his hands rewards him.

Proverbs 12:16
A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Proverbs 12:18
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 12:22
The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful.
