Wisdom and Common Sense

by Joyce Meyer - posted August 30, 2015

Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God’s Word and life’s experiences] … Skillful and godly Wisdom is more precious than rubies…Her ways are highways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
- Proverbs 3:13–17

When we listen to God’s direction, we make wise decisions that lead to honor, prosperity, pleasantness, and peace. Once Dave and I pray for God to speak to us and guide us, we use wisdom and common sense for both major and minor issues.

Wisdom will always lead you to God’s best. For example, wisdom teaches that you won’t keep friends if you try to control and dominate everything that goes on in your life and theirs. You won’t keep friends if you talk about them behind their backs.

Common sense will guide you in money matters. You won’t get into debt if you don’t spend more money than you make. The Holy Spirit doesn’t need to speak audibly to tell us that we can’t have more money going out than we have coming in. Common sense tells us that we’ll get in trouble if we do that.

Wisdom will not let us get overcommitted in our time. No matter how anxious we may be to accomplish things, we need to take time and wait on God to give us peace about what we are and are not to do. The woman mentioned in Proverbs 31 considered buying new fields, but would not do so if it meant she would have to neglect her present duties by taking on new responsibility.

Wisdom is our friend. It helps us not live in regret, and it helps us make choices now that we will be happy with later on.

God’s word for you today: Practice wisdom and common sense in all your decisions.
