Proverbs 14:15 – Giving Thought

Today’s Readings: Judges 13:1‐14:20, John 1:29‐51, Psalm 102:1‐28, Proverbs 14:15‐16

His Word: Proverbs 14:15 The simple believes everything,
but the prudent gives thought to his steps.

My words: Do you believe the world too much?

  • Do you believe everything you read?  Are you monitoring what you are reading?
  • Do you believe everything you hear?  Do you check what you hear against reputable sources?

Do you give thought to your steps?

  • Prudent – wise or judicious in practical affairs, careful in providing for the future
  • Have you thought and prayed through your future?  Check out this excellent post for ways to be intentional about your life plan.
  • When was the last time you fasted over your steps?  Praying over my job and my marriage are two of the more meaningful moments in my spiritual life.

Apply: I need to think about where I’m going.

What helps you to live on purpose?
