Do You Possess Prudence?

Now that the inauguration of our 45th president has taken place…let’s talk about something else that may be important in our own lives, and even in our country:

 

PRUDENCE

Do you possess prudence? The definition of prudence is the “exercise of caution and wisdom in practical affairs and wise management of one’s material resources and personal qualities.

Onto this Inauguration Day’s inspirational thought…

“Prudence means

good management of resources.

Each of us has an allotted amount

of time and energy,

and we should manage it in such a way

that we bear the most fruit we can.

Emotionally driven people

usually lead frustrated lives.

They are filled with creative ideas,

but are unable to settle down long enough

to lay out a blueprint

and get a solid foundation.

They want instant results,

and if they don’t get them,

they are usually off to another new project

that will also fail.

I encourage you to ‘consider’ decisions,

purchases, and life choices.

Be sure you expand prudently.

Don’t court neglect of other duties

by taking on new ones,

unless of course those present duties

can be moved on to someone else

to make room for your new venture.

A sure way to lose your confidence

is to have so much to do

that you are not doing any of it well.

Pray: ‘Lord, I need to know

that You are my foundation,

and my life is being built

according to Your blueprint.

Give me discernment to know

Your ways and purposes. Amen.'”  

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”

My Reflections

 

Good management of resources. I do fail miserably at this one, far too often. This line:  “They are filled with creative ideas, but are unable to settle down long enough to lay out a blueprint and get a solid foundation.” and “A sure way to lose your confidence is to have so much to do that you are not doing any of it well.  Sounds like me– some things I really need to change! Looking forward to making those changes in this new year!

So What Are YOUR  Thoughts?

Are you a good manager of resources?

Or do you feel overwhelmed with so much to do that you’re not doing any of it as well as you could be?

  1. I am not a good manager of resources or of time. I am filled with creative ideas and easily distracted! I flit from one to the next! I need to say that prayer over and over and over again!!!

  2. Awesome post. Thanksfor sharing this. I think we forget about prudence
