Wisdom and Action
Proverbs 2-3 implores us to consider the benefits of acting wisely.
Daily Proverb: Proverbs 3:27
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.”
Another theme we will read in Proverbs is that of ACTION. To possess wisdom we have to act. It is not enough to think a compliment or good deed and never say or do it. It is not wisdom to have good intentions you never follow through on (towards your spouse or kid or friend or coworker). As a matter of fact, the Bible says elsewhere that we only deceive ourselves if we don’t act on what we know.
What is the good thing that you just haven’t made time to do? Do it today.
(And because Proverbs says we will gain wisdom, pay attention to what understanding or insight you receive as a result!)
