Wisdom and prudence dwell together like husband and wife (12). Prudence is care and good sense that is shown when making a decision or taking action and it is cautious care in the management of resources, economy, family, body, and mind.
Knowledge and discretion are another couple. They are owned by wisdom (12). Discretion is the power or right to decide or act according to one’s own judgment; freedom of judgment or choice.
God wants me to be an adult made in the image of His beloved Son, Jesus. I should not wait around for God to do something for me all the time as a toddler around his mother’s dress The Lord wants me to possess and utilize these two couples; wisdom and prudence; knowledge and discretion.
Jesus called disciples to him so that he could teach them wisdom, prudence, knowledge, and discretion. Every act, every word, every look, and every example was Jesus teaching his disciples what it is like to be an adult in God’s eye. Jesus lived the way God intends his children to live. I am Jesus’ disciple. I will follow his example and be an adult.
