Daily Reading: Exodus 26:1-27:21, Matthew 25:1-30, Psalm 31:1-8, Proverbs 8:1-11

Daily Verse: “O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.” Prov. 8:5

Orma, the original Hebrew word for “prudence,” means cunning. Peti, “simple” in its original form, means “someone easily deceived.”  Learning cunning helps us spot deception and avoid it.

Planning a summer vacation, I asked for recommendations in a Facebook group. Someone planning a similar adventure messaged me through the app. Before I could accept the message, a warning popped up, telling me how to spot scammers. In other words, Facebook helped me learn prudence in receiving messages from strangers.

Scripture helps spot deception, acting like a warning sign on social media. What motivates our hearts motivates our actions. The love of money causes many people to do illicit things. A heart dedicated to Christ takes a different path.

Learn prudence by reading and applying the scriptures to your life. Let God’s sense plant in your heart, guiding and directing you on the path of eternal life.

Lord, thank You for the scriptures, and the wisdom found within the pages of the Bible. Help us apply it to our lives, learning prudence and letting sense firmly plant in our hearts. IJNIP. Amen
