“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.

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

When a person’s life is pleasing to God; God will position Himself to hear each and every one of the person’s prayers. God will keep His ears open to listen to the requests and cries of the person so that He may meet the needs and desires of the person. When a person is disobedient and does not please God, the individual will not be able to get God’s attention because God will close His ears to the person, not hearing anything the person has to say. The only prayer God wants to hear from a disobedient person is a prayer of repentance. 

Proverb 15:29 says “The Lord does not listen to the wicked, but He hears the prayers of those who do right.” (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.” 

It is very important to use wisdom when you are in a heated conversation with someone, are disagreeing with someone or even upset with someone in the way that they respond to you. Even though you may be upset or disagree with the other person, you must not allow the individual to pull you out of your character in the way which you respond to them. The best and wisest way is to either not respond at all by being quiet, or either respond in a loving and gentle way to bring peace into the conversation.

Proverbs 15:1-2 says “A gentle answer will calm a person’s anger, but an unkind answer will cause more anger. Wise people use knowledge when they speak, but fools pour out foolishness.” (NCV)

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

If a person is not open and receptive to learn, they will not be knowledgeable of the things that are, and have been taught to them, no matter how many times someone has been, and is willing to teach them. Everyone plays the role of a student at some time or another in their life. Just because a person may go to school does not mean the person is there to learn. If a person’s mind is closed, they will never know or understand anything that has been taught to them, no matter how many times the person may step into a classroom. 

Proverb 14:18 says “Fools are rewarded with more foolishness. Smart people are rewarded with knowledge.” (ERV)

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

Daily, we should not only pray for wisdom, but also discernment and understanding, as well. They all go hand in hand together and are all very important for a person to possess. Even when dealing with an enemy, a foolish and silly person that may cause you to get upset; the gifts of wisdom, discernment and understanding will teach you how to remain calm so you will know how to properly respond and deal with the person.

Proverbs 14:17 & 29 says “Someone with a quick temper does foolish things, but someone with understanding remains calm. Patient people have great understanding, but people with quick tempers show their foolishness.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

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

Some people feel as if they can do whatever they want and get away with the things they choose to do, even if the things they do are wrong. They will even try to justify their wrong as being right, and all the time; the individuals are doing nothing but self destructing themselves. Wrong will never be right and right will never be wrong. 

Proverbs 14:12 says “Some people think they are doing right, but in the end it leads to death.” (NCV)

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

You must always be careful of the people that try to attach and connect themselves to you, especially if the individuals will do anything and everything, even if the things are wrong and can lead you to getting into trouble. There is some trouble a person cannot get out of, and a person who leads others down the wrong path cannot teach anyone anything. 

Proverbs 14:7 & 9 says “Stay away from fools, because they can’t teach you anything. Fools don’t care if they sin, but honest people work at being right.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.

“A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

In life, you will cross the path of people who will pretend to be more than who they really are, as well as pretend to have more than what they really have. People who are wise do not pretend to be someone or something they are not because that is deceptive, and it also causes the person to be considered as a liar; neither does a wise person boast and brag about what they have. The wealthiest people in life are those who possess wisdom and do not bring attention to themselves by making others think they are living a luxurious lifestyle.  

Proverb 13:7 says “Some people pretend to be rich but really have nothing. Others pretend to be poor but really are wealthy.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
