As leaders, others often look for our perspective and guidance. Sometimes we can anticipate the decisions we will be called upon to make, other times they come unexpectedly, at a moment’s notice. How can we prepare ourselves to make godly decisions and offer wisdom to others? One way is to saturate our minds with God’s truth by meditating on the wisdom, life stories, and principles in Scripture. We can preface our responses with prayer and reflection that allows the Spirit to guide our thoughts and words. What practices help you offer godly wisdom to others?
Buy the truth and do not sell it— wisdom, instruction and insight as well.—Proverbs 23:23
Prayer: Jesus, You are known as a wise teacher whose wisdom has stood the test of time. Help us fill our minds with scriptural truth and grow in wisdom, as we prayerfully apply God’s truth to our lives and the lives of those around us, so becoming more like You. In Your name we pray, amen.
