Mature Perspective Needed

Mature Perspective Needed

In times of upheaval and crisis, we look for people who can offer wisdom and perspective. These qualities are frequently found in those who have trusted God through difficult times in their own lives. They have experienced hardship, suffering, and spent time prayerfully seeking God. As a result, they gain a mature perspective that encompasses knowing what to say, as well as when and how to share it. These men and women offer wisdom, compassion, and truth to encourage us to keep our focus on God’s will and God’s way. Who are the wise in heart truth-tellers in your life?  

Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord. The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.—Proverbs 16:20-21

Prayer: Lord, thank You for sending people who are wise in heart into our lives. May we give heed to their instruction and example, so that we also become wise, discerning Your presence and guidance. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
