Sword Fighting Class – More Discretion and Understanding

My child, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and you will find the knowledge of God.Proverbs 2 1st page - this one

For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.  He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.  He guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.  Then you will understnad what is right and just and fair – every good path.  For wisdom will enter your heart and understanding will be pleasant to your soul.”

Yeah, God!  We’re adding verse 11 this week:

‘Discretion will protect you and understanding will guard you.’

Discretion means to be careful and thoughtful about our speech and actions in order to avoid causing offense, to keep something confidential or avoid embarrassment.

Could any of us benefit from more discretion?  I know I could.

And I love all of God’s promises in this passage about giving us more understanding.  Understanding will help us make better decisions and help us determine the best way to act.

Discretion and understanding will protect us from ourselves – bad choices and words that should not be said.

Please give us discretion and understanding, Abba Father.
