vibrate higher

Today's readings: 2 Chron 17:1-18:34, Rom 9:25-10:13, Psalm 20:1-9, Prov 20:2-3

So I'm going to take a break from Paul today and talk about the Proverb, since I totally ignored the Proverb yesterday (for maybe a good reason).

The Proverb today says something that facebookers will note well, as well as people who are out in public. "Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling."

You do find a great deal of foolishness online and in public. And there are times when it can be hard not to take what someone says personally. But, as the clever aphorism above says, and as the Proverb agrees, we can and should "rise above" such remarks, avoid getting caught up in the heat of the moment. and choose wisdom instead of foolishness. Arguably, that's what all of the Proverbs are pointing to - choosing wisdom.

God, help me choose wisdom by "vibrating on a higher frequency".
