Your Mouth Can Save You From Trouble 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Wisdom should always be used in the words that a person release out of their mouth. Because there is power in the words you speak, you should be very careful of every word that you allow to go into the atmosphere and environment. Everything that you release out of your mouth, you can actually make it happen for yourself; whether it be good or bad, negative or positive. The safest and wisest thing to do is to always think before you speak. 

Proverb 21:23 says “If you want to stay out of trouble, be careful what you say.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Foolishness Can Lead To Death

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

A person should always think before doing things, especially if the things they are going to do are foolish because foolish, unwise things can cause harm or danger, and can even lead to death. Even when a warning goes out to a person and a person refuses to listen or obey, but the person chooses to do whatever it is they may want; wrong things are chosen over right, then the person will end up having to suffer the consequences whatever and however they may be. 

Proverbs 21:16 & 29 says “Whoever does not use good sense will end up among the dead. Wicked people are stubborn, but good people think carefully about what they do.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

A Person Can Do Wrong For So Long 

​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Most people who do dishonest, unethical and unlawful things see no wrong in the things they do because most of the time, they will do wrong for so long before they are eventually caught and brought to justice. People who do not agree with the individual’s wrongdoing will sometimes get upset because they cannot understand why it may take so long before the person is caught and brought to justice but God always has a reason, purpose and plan for everything He allows, even when people do wrong for extended periods of time. God will give a person time and space to stop doing wrong, so a person can make things right. When a person refuses to make their wrongs right, God will then take it upon Himself to stop the individual and will take matters into His own hands. God will not only stop the person from doing wrong, but God will also allow other people to see or hear about how He will allow the person to be brought to justice and open shame. Even at times when it may seem like a person may be getting away with wrong, God is always behind the scenes working to show that His hand is bigger than the person’s hand. There is no hand that can outdo the hand of God. Therefore, no one ever gets away with anything, 

Proverbs 21:15 & 30 says “A decision that is fair makes good people happy, but it makes those who are evil very afraid. There is no one wise enough to make a plan that can succeed if the Lord is against it.” (ERV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

It Is A Sad Thing When God Moves People To The Bottom   

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

 
People who walk and operate in the spirit of pride, arrogance, evil, and wrongdoing are people who also walk and operate in sin. God frowns on people who think they are better and above others, as well as those who think they can do wrong and get away with it. God has a way of shifting people and moving them around because people who are proud, arrogant, self-righteous and who think they are better and above others always feel as if they are on top by looking down on others. While these individuals are busy looking down on others, God is behind the scenes slowly rearranging things so that the high-minded person will eventually end up beneath the people they have been looking down on. 

Proverbs 21:4 & 24 says “Proud looks and proud thoughts are sins. They show a person is evil.  Proud people think they are better than others. They show they are evil by what they do.” (ERV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Obedience Is Always Better Than Sacrifice 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Obedience is always better than sacrifice. God always honors people for their obedience to Him. Whenever people obey God by not giving in to temptation, wrongdoing or things that will satisfy or please the person instead of satisfying and pleasing God, it shows that a person trusts God to keep them from doing wrong. God does not honor and bless wrong, but God does make a person pay for their acts of wrong. Because God loves right, He will always bless a person for doing the right thing, even if the person is tempted by the wrong things. 

Proverb 21:3 & 8 says “Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Judges Everything

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Everyone will be judged by God for the things they do, say, as well as think. Because God sees, hears and knows everything; all things are known to Him, including the thoughts, hearts and motives of a person. Because all things are known to God, no one can ever justify their wrongs, in order to make them right. God will always call “wrong as wrong and right as right”.

Proverbs 20:8-9 says “When a king sits on his throne to judge, he knows evil when he sees it. No one can say, “I am innocent; I have never done anything wrong.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

In order to become a wise person, you must do things that will cause you to gain wisdom. One of the first things in becoming wise is realizing that you do not know everything; no one is that smart, not even the smartest person. If you really want to be smart and wise at the same time, then you must learn to take advice and wise counsel from others, as well as know how to accept correction. When a person is honest with themself, the individual will know that even though correction may not always feel good, but it is for their good. Counsel and correction goes hand in hand together in causing a person to grow in life, as well as in becoming wise and mature.

Proverb 19:20 says “Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There is power in every word that is released out of a person’s mouth. The words a person speak can either bring life or death to their situations or circumstances. Words can either heal or kill, as well as tear down or build up. Only wise, positive, encouraging and inspirational words should be released into the atmosphere and environment because these are the type of words that give life to people, to situations and circumstances. 

Proverbs 18:20 & 21 says “You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say. What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.” (Good News Bible) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

A person who listens and learns from a warning is a very wise person. They make things easy on themself by learning from the mistakes of others, in order to keep themself out of trouble, as well as to save themself from misery, heartache and pain. A person who will not listen nor take heed to instructions and warnings only sets themself up for trouble, along with pain. A warning will always come before destruction. 

Proverb 17:10 says “A wise person will learn more from a warning than a fool will learn from a hundred lashings.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.” 

Whenever a person does or says things, it should always be said and done with a pure heart. Even though others cannot see the heart of a person, God knows and sees a person’s heart and God also knows the motives behind everything a person may do or say. God will always judge the heart of a person because only God knows if a person’s reason for doing and saying things is right or wrong.

Proverb 16:2 says “You may think everything you do is right, but the Lord judges your motives.” (Good News Bible) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
