Today's Verse : Proverbs 2:11


February 11, 2012

Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
-- Proverbs 2:11

My greatest mistakes have been made in haste, when I didn't
allow a little prayer time to consider what I was going to do or
say. While discretion and understanding are acquired through
learning and experience, they are also a gift from God. But this
gift doesn't come on demand. It comes from patiently seeking,
trusting, and waiting on the Lord's guidance and from longing to
live for him as a person of character.

Forgive me Father, for I fear that I am more often a "character"
than I am a person of character. Forgive my selfish desire to play
to the crowd. I confess that I sometimes try to be witty and
popular, rather than being a person of discretion, understanding,
and integrity. Help me please, dear LORD, to see through the
temptation of haste and find your path to integrity. In Jesus' name
I pray. Amen.
