Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
Some of our greatest mistakes are made in haste, when we don’t allow a little prayer time to consider what we are going to do or say.
While discretion and understanding are acquired through learning and experience, they are also a gift from God. But this gift doesn't come on demand. It comes from patiently seeking, trusting, and waiting on the Lord's guidance and from longing to live for him as a person of character.
Heavenly Father, provide me with discretion and understanding as you guide me each day. Help me to see through the temptation of haste and find your path to integrity. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
