Daily Thoughts – Wisdom Rules OK

By me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; by me princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. (Proverbs 8:15, 16)

The ‘me’ here is wisdom. You may not be a king, ruler, prince or noble (yet) but this advert still applies. There are things that have been given to you to ‘rule’ over – emotions, thoughts, words, actions, relationships, money (OK, not much, but enough), talents, skills, abilities, dreams – life itself. The principle that allows leaders to rule well is the same principle that will allow us to rule our affairs well – using the time we’re given to make the most of every situation. For this to happen, wisdom must rule.

Daily Thoughts – Don’t Be A Sucker For A Smooth Operator

With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk. (Proverbs 6:21)


These are not the words in a romantic classic or the prelude to a steamy hot thriller. These are the tragic words from a wise man on a young fool who falls for an adulteress. And they could be the same tragic words given about a middle-aged fool who buys now only to realise he can’t pay later when trying to keep with the Joneses. Please be careful to check out more than the words people say – words are important, but the truth of the matter is critical. Do not be a sucker for a smooth operator.

For His Name’s Sake
Shalom
