Wisdom (vs. Foolishness)
Making practical applications of what is learned
To practice Wisdom I will:
- Listen to my parents and teachers
- Learn from correction
- Choose my friends carefully
- Remember there are consequences to all my actions
- Ask, “What is the right thing to do?”
Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a personal GPS to guide us in making wise decisions? In deciding which path to take, we often consult with others to tell us what to do. In most cases, they will tell us what to do based on the truths that they live by. This may not be the truths that we live by. A true mentor will help us to understand our own truths and therefore our own path, the one that is right for us. Ultimately, we are the only ones who know what our individual truths are so it is important to listen to that inner voice. That’s when the wise path becomes obvious. So then, it seems, we do have an internal GPS if we are just quiet enough to listen to it.
This month, let your inner truths keep you headed in the right direction.
