One thing you need, no matter what! Get it!


"Love wisdom like a sweetheart. Make her a beloved member of your family."
Proverbs 7:4 (TLB)

Maybe you are facing some difficult situations and decisions today. I understand.

You have several ways you can respond. With some of them it's not so much a matter of "is it right?" or "is it wrong?" but "is it wise?"

Last week I was fired up about something. I was justified in being upset and had an action plan to respond. I made my husband aware of my plan. He said he thought it was completely appropriate but asked me to wait two days before implementing it.

I wasn't sure why he asked me to wait two days. I didn't ask why he suggested that, but it just seemed like a good idea when he said it.

After several days have passed, I have now come to the conclusion that while entirely appropriate, "the plan" I had in mind was not the wisest choice. It would definitely have done more harm than good in the long run.

I am feeling very relieved that I didn't launch "the plan" on day one.

Wisdom is a fantastic thing. No wonder the bible says that no matter what, we should get it.
