Wisdom is sweet for your soul

Proverbs 24:14 (https://bit.ly/3ciYPY0) – “Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul”

God tells us that if we ask for wisdom, He will give it to us. Knowing this builds on to the hope that we have a future in Christ.

God has a plan for each of us. Isn’t it encouraging to know that God helps us along the way. He freely gives His wisdom to us, all we need to do is ask for it (James 1:5 – https://bit.ly/2BRgvrF).
Ain’t that sweet?

Let’s continue to press into God asking for wisdom and take comfort that we will hear from Him.

Bully beef

Proverbs 12:18 (https://bit.ly/2rbbt3g)

We’ve all heard it said, “a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.” While this may only be true for certain foods, this principle is very true for the words that we choose to speak.

I finished school quite a few years ago, but I can still clearly remember some of the bad things that were said to me. What’s even sadder, I can also remember the bad things that I’ve said to others. I really regret it now.

Our words can have lasting effects, but remember that healing words can have a lasting effect too!

Pride vs Humility

Proverbs 10:13 (https://bit.ly/3BCev2H)

It’s easy to spot a proud person, but pride can be difficult to identify in ourselves. There’s a healthy kind of pride and an unhealthy kind of pride. It’s healthy to be proud of someone for their achievements. It’s also healthy to feel proud of yourself for doing the right thing in a tough situation.

Pride becomes unhealthy when we start to think that we are better than others. God doesn’t want us to be proud in this way (James 4:6 – https://bit.ly/3BKWHTq).

God wants us to stay humble, he even shows His favour upon those who are humble.
So, let’s choose humility over pride.

Be alert.

Solomon says, “A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls” (Proverbs 25:28 – https://bit.ly/3iWpiwO).

When we watch too much. Eat too much. Drink too much. Play too much. Dwell too much. We let down the guarding walls to our heart and mind, giving the Devil an opportunity to plant lies (1 Peter 5:8 – https://bit.ly/3j7mVJd).

“It’s not harming anyone.” To whisper half-truths. “They’ll like you more”. To deceive. “You’ll feel better”.

Self-control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:23 – https://bit.ly/3p7j2rw).
Ask the Holy Spirit to guard your heart and mind today.
