The Best Advice Ever
All the words of my mouth are righteous;
there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.—Proverbs 8:8
Have you ever heard someone say something so profound you've embedded it in your memory forever? I bet the emotions you felt at this moment, and the events you experienced reinforced the power of these words. These moments have an echoing effect on our lives and have the power to shape our thoughts, attitudes, and actions for years. Yet the words of Wisdom, (personified above), have a lasting impact in the right direction. If we could learn to read them, listen to them, and heed them when these emotional events arise, we may soon discover that King Solomon was correct—there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.
DO THIS: Trust God's Wisdom before human opinion regardless of how emotional the moment might be.
PRAY THIS: God, help me to listen more carefully for your Wisdom today.
