Wisdom and Being Smart

Are we being smart or wise?... 

While these 2 words generally mean the same thing, there is a big difference. 

Being smart comes from relying on our own self driven actions, skills, knowledge, and work. 

Wisdom comes from knowing our limitations, learning from experience, and relying on something or someone outside of ourselves. 

Humility and discernment lead us to wisdom. 

So, my friends I invite you to think (meditate) on this today. 

We need both in our lives and depending on the situation is when we must make the choice. 

Are you being smart or wise?... Check your experience … 

“if it is wisely handled -- and it seems to be in wise and prudent hands -- there are doors of opportunity ahead of this project that may surpass our capacities to imagine." Big Book pg. 572 

 Lord, let us lean toward wisdom when it comes to maters of the heart and will, AMEN.

 “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17 

 Have a blessed day y’all
