Thirsty Thursdays: God's Wisdom,Your Choice

 
One of the great gifts God gave to mankind is the power of choice (free will). To fully enjoy the abundance of blessings God has for his people we need to make lifestyle CHOICES that align with HIS will for our lives. Our values and decisions should coincide with HIS word.

Proverbs, as we read in yesterday’s great post, is wisdom literature. Chapter 11 provides us with more knowledge and wisdom, explaining the benefits of different characteristic traits, which can help us make the RIGHT CHOICES/DECISIONS.  “2. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” We read how time and time again Pharaoh allowed his pride to prohibit him from submitting to God’s will, thus allowing for many plagues to come upon the Egyptians. “5 The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness…8 The righteous person is rescued from trouble, and it falls on the wicked instead.” When living righteously and following God’s will for your life, progression and blessings are constant. When doing your own thing, living immoral and evil lifestyles, we get caught up in a cycle of disappointment and chagrin, tripping over our mistakes and wrongdoings. “19 Truly the righteous attain life, but whoever pursues evil finds death…21…the wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free. 22 Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion...25 a generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed…27whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it."

This whole chapter is full of gems to help us improve as individuals and grow in Christ. It provides us with the benefits of righteous living as well as warning us about being wicked and immoral. Reading this made me think of a powerful saying, “Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become character. Watch your character for it becomes your destiny.” Be conscious of what you say/do and use your God given ability of free will to build a better relationship with others as well as God, thus building the kingdom.
