A word of prudence

Prudence and her ways are a good thing to embrace for the 15th of June and other dates that the world sees changes.

The 15th of June is when non-essential shops are to open again therefore the British being the British, or any other nationality are likely to want to have a break from the isolation of lockdown and go shopping or just generaly go out more.

For the above, I want you to hold onto the Proverb below. I will say why.

The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.
Proverbs 27:12 ESV

I want you to hold onto this Proverb as I predict that things might be quite different after the lockdown eases e.g.

  • Many people may have developed mental health problems during isolation and may not be as reasonable. Be vigilant and love them back. Proverbs 18:21.
  • People may take it upon themselves to tell you what not to do or what to do when really that is not their job. They think they are being useful but instead they stir up friction. Be patient and love them back. Proverbs 18:21 again.
  • Please can you yourself think of other ways that you need to be careful as the lockdown eases and things change again. If you think of it yourself then you will learn it better and also have confidence in your intelligence which is then double prudence.

I hope things will be fine and we should be wise all the time anyway e.g. we play the right worship for Jesus at the right time, we help Others like the homeless with decaf drinks and not money to spend on drugs, and You look after yourself as God loves you.

If you are wise, you are wise for yourself; if you scoff, you alone will bear it.
Proverbs 9:12 ESV

You have a better chance of being at peace if you go shopping a few days or a week after the lockdown eases on the 15th. It will be less busy and not a big rush.

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
Proverbs 3:17 ESV
