Alright ladies. Let's talk brains and actions.
One thing the Bible instructs for us to use is WISDOM. Wisdom doesn't necessarily mean scholarly knowledge. I do believe that we need to take the opportunities of knowledge when available, however. That's besides the fact though.
Wisdom, according to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary is simply having 'good sense'.
I look around today and see women and all I think is... "Really?? Have you no common sense??" It's rather embarrassing...
Women, Step up and think things through. Put thought and reasoning into your decisions. Don't embarrass yourself or the people and things you represent.
Proverbs 31:26 is boldly worded, "She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness."
Our actions and words reflect many things. Do we want to poorly represent God just because we chose not to make sense of certain situations?
Doug Larson once said, "Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk."
Wisdom is obtained by a few things.
First off, always listen to God. He's the ultimate at helping you make the right decisions.
Pray about it! Prayer is a window of communication to God. How can we have a relationship without talking? Ask God for the wisdom and to help direct you.
For serious matters, apply the 24 hour rule. Don't react until one day later. Those who react immediately tend to regret the decision - either over or under reacting.
*Props to the pops/daddio for teaching me this tidbit of wisdom.
Be smart, ladies.
