Encouragement for Today

Today’s Verse

From the New Living Translation

  “Listen to me! For I have important things to tell you.
  Everything I say is right,
for I speak the truth
  and detest every kind of deception.
My advice is wholesome.
  There is nothing devious or crooked in it.
My words are plain to anyone with understanding,
  clear to those with knowledge.”

Proverbs 8:6-9

Encouragement for Today

What characterizes wisdom from God as opposed to mere human wisdom? It is excellent and important, not trivial. It is right and true, having no deception as part of it. It is wholesome and good, with nothing twisted. It is plain and clear, not hidden. When evaluating whether something is truly wise, look for these characteristics. If the ideas pass the test, embrace them as valuable wisdom.
