Wisdom’s Turn!

Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. Proverbs 13:10 NIV

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 NIV

Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it, but whoever respects a command is rewarded. Proverbs 13:13 NIV

The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death. Proverbs 13:14 NIV

Good judgment wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful leads to their destruction. Proverbs 13:15 NIV

All who are prudent act with knowledge, but fools expose their folly. Proverbs 13:16 NIV

If we are honest with ourselves about ourselves and look closely, we will see us in any of the Proverbs–not those just listed here, but any of them. When we are willing to see ourselves, we’ll see others more clearly and understand we are standing in the room marked, “improvements needed” and won’t judge others negatively simply because we have not shared their walk in life.

When wisdom speaks–we should certainly listen since this wisdom–comes from above and is not contingent upon what mere mortals think.
