There is more hope for fools than for people who think they are wise. The lazy person is full of excuses, saying, “I can’t go outside because there might be a lion on the road! Yes, I’m sure there’s a lion out there!” As a door turns back and forth on its hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed. Some people are so lazy that they won’t lift a finger to feed themselves. Lazy people consider themselves smarter than seven wise counselors. (Prov 26:12-16 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, if I think that I am wiser than others, remind me that I am on dangerous ground. Yours is the only wisdom that matters. If I can be mindful of this and live accordingly, I am on the threshold of true wisdom. Help me live my life in humility, with integrity, responsibility, and accountability, never making excuses, but making the most of every opportunity for Your wisdom to be expressed through me. Increase me in Your wisdom. Do whatever You need to do to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
