Wisdom Yields Patience

*Pastor’s Note: I’m getting ready to do an expository teaching on the short letter Paul wrote to Philemon. The one thing that stands out in that is the wisdom that the Apostle uses. I was visiting Sister Dawn’s site the other day, catching up on lot I’ve missed and found this gem. All her writings are like precious gems; nuggets of treasure if you’re willing to look. I hope you’re blessed by this as much as myself. Of course, it was also confimation to me, always a plus!

By the way, she is one of those Sisters that has a great gift of making the spiritual practical and easy to understand. Stop by and let her know you visited. God Bless!

Drawing Closer to Christ

Proverbs 19:11 NIV, ”A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.”

With the stress of today’s world, we are presented with opportunities to be offended on a regular basis. This verse, challenges us to overlook offenses; however, it is wisdom that will help us to know how to handle a situation. Sometimes we have to confront people, but other times it is wise to patiently extend mercy and let go.

The Holy Spirit will guide us into truth regarding the circumstances surrounding our situations. We need to have the right timing and the right words when addressing someone who has offended us. It is always wise to pray and think before we act and speak.
