The simple believes everything,
but the prudent gives thoughts to his steps.
Proverbs 14:15 ESV
Flying By the Seat of Your Pants
Many of us make our decisions on the fly. Things happen to us and we respond. Often, we don't give it much thought. Even when it is a big issue, we go with what feels right or what our emotions say. However, someone who makes decisions like that is called "simple." This type of person is easily swayed. Because not much thought goes into decision making, they can easily be persuaded to change their mind.
However, someone who is prudent thinks through what he/she is doing. They consider the consequences and what their actions may convey to others. This type of person is not easily swayed by things that sound good. This type of person carefully weighs what is put before him/her.
God calls us to be different than the world. Our actions carry weight. Christians should always be prudent and consider what the Bible says about the situation. God grants wisdom and direction to those who seek it. We just need to take the time to ask and wait for the answer. Are you being prudent?
WORDS OF WISDOM JOURNAL
If you want to take it further, you can do a Words of Wisdom journal. Simply make categories (you can add a category whenever you want) and put the Bible verses into the appropriate categories. For instance, one category might be "Money." Every time a verse has to do with money, you write it under the category. As time goes on, you will have a journal of wisdom from the Bible organized in an easy to find way.
