As we work our way through a Proverbs-a-day I hope you’re beginning to realize the benefits. If you’re just getting started, read today’s Proverb (along with any other regular reading you enjoy) and ask the Lord to give you wisdom from His Word for today.
The goal is to learn from God, to start the day with some quiet and give yourself permission to listen to legit wisdom.
If you have been foolish in exalting yourself
Or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth. Pro 30:32
You don’t need to wait until you’ve foolishly exalted yourself or set out to plot the evil. Maybe by rehearsing this verse in your heart and mind, you can catch it before it becomes necessary. Wisdom doesn’t say ‘never speak up’. Wisdom knows the times we need to give our mouth, or keyboard, a time-out.
Have a great day. Even if it’s a little quieter.
