Today's Daily Verse is found in Proverbs 1.4
"for endowing with caution those who don’t think and the young person with knowledge and discretion.."
"I, wisdom, (God’s wisdom) dwell together with prudence; I
possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I
hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech."
Proverbs 2.11-12 "Discretion will protect us, and understanding will guard us. Wisdom will save us from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse."
Discretion is enjoyed by people who are mature.
It implies the freedom to make quality choices with our own "GOD-wisdom" judgment, and not be controlled by the emotions of other people.
"Like a gold ring in a pig’s
snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion."
Be warned whenever you see or read about people who try to exalt themselves with beauty, popularity or prestige while forgetting to practice discretion.
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
Here lies the value of the Bible, as the one source of instruction, and the alone "treasure-house" of the "words of knowledge."
This is the battle we face. Discretion!
Our thought-life is developed through the "information" we feed on.
Then we are to put that "knowledge" first in all thoughts, words, and actions...
See you tomorrow...
