The first time I heard this word was in a personality assessment I took for work. I wondered to myself is this good? It showed that I had a high prudence. According to the assessment I took it meant that I was organized, dependable, and inflexible. It predicted by self-control, conscientiousness, and work ethic. It suggested that I am: hardworking, precise, and planful. I follow rules carefully and expect others to do so as well. I have high standards of performance for myself and others. And I find it difficult to adapt to change / make quick decisions because I analyze what the outcomes could be. To break it down into subcategories:
The word prudence stuck with me for weeks after I read my results. I couldn’t yet figure out the word PRUDENCE. Until……
Until I turned my bible to Proverbs 11
It discusses the idea where humility = wisdom. Wealth = worthless. Righteous = Rescued
It discusses how a kindhearted woman gains honor but ruthless men only gain wealth.
Proverbs 11:25 “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”
Finally in Proverbs 12:8 the word PRUDENCE rose about.
It says: “ A person is praised according to their PRUDENCE.”
So what does it mean for someone to be PRUDENT according to the Bible?
These are just a few ways the Bible explains this.
The reason I am writing this is because little did I know the importance of this simple word. I had no idea of the impact it can have. I encourage you all to carry PRUDENCE.
I think Proverbs 11-20 really showcases what this all means and entails, and I think that all of these words are extremely valuable for today’s world.
It discusses Patience, Peace, Kindness, Calmness, Wisdom.
I encourage you all to act with PRUDENCE this week.
