Winsome Wednesday - Wise Ways!

They say if you want to know more how to relate to God, read the Psalms.  And if you want to relate better to man, read Proverbs!   I love the book of Proverbs.  It cuts to the chase!  So many gems in Proverbs!  Today I am feeling challenged by Prov 3 v 17:  Her (Wisdom's) ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her (Wisdom's) paths are peace.  Amen and amen.



It is wise to be pleasant in your ways and when demonstrating Godly Wisdom.  A person can be wise and be arrogant in attitude.  That attitude cancels out the benefit of the wisdom because it becomes about the attitude.

In Prov 4 v 6 it says:  Do not forsake her (Wisdom), and she (Wisdom) will preserve you.

My encouragement and challenge to you is seek Godly wisdom, but in the using of it, be pleasant!  So God gets the glory and you the benefit.

God bless
Tracy

  1. Yes Lord, let our hearts be humble, let us carefully weigh what we say, when we say it, & how we say it, so that it glorifies you! Amen, Tracy!

  3. Good thoughts Tracy; when we trust God with our lives even when at times it makes no sense, we receive wisdom and the ability to know the difference. The wisdom of depending on God will bring results in our lives that can surprise us!! :)

  5. Tracy ~ Thanks for sharing your thoughts on wisdom - and how to use it. Wisdom is a good thing, at yet, even with it we need to be careful how we use it. Thanks for this great reminder. Have a blessed week and thanks also for hosting another Link-Up!

  6. I always think of wisdom as not just knowing what to do (or say) but how to do it.

  7. Dear Tracey
    And I love that part of Ecclesiastes where Solomon concludes that wisdom starts with the fear of The Lord! Thanks for thoughtful words.
    Much love

  11. Good message, Tracy. I've been struggling with being *pleasant* lately. So many frustrations pile up, and without realizing it, I find myself being short with everyone. Not the way of peace! Thanks for the word from the Word!

    GOD BLESS!

  14. So often we think of wisdom as something dry and boring or constraining, but the Bible shows us otherwise. Thank you for the reminder.

  15. I'm continually amazed at how relevant Proverbs is for daily life. The insights keep on coming...

    My husband spent 2012 reading through Proverbs - and he shared his insights as he went through over and over. He's continued into 2013 - this is his 6th time through.
