The one who walks with the wise will become wise, but a companion of fools will suffer harm.
PROVERBS 13:20 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Fortunate is the person who has wise friends. I benefit greatly from wise relatives, coworkers, and friends. I meet monthly with three friends in an unplanned, unscripted conversation. We discuss what is going on in our individual worlds and seek wisdom from one another. 

A few months ago, I mentioned an issue I struggle with more than I should. They ask me about this each month with genuine curiosity. They offer advice only to the degree I ask for it. They ask good coaching questions to help me process my thinking differently than I normally do. This is extremely helpful. 

Who are the wise people in your life? Do you connect with them regularly? 

I heard a guy say one time, “Use all the brains you have and all you can borrow.” This is wise advice. 

Whose brains will you borrow today? How can you turn that into a life-giving habit?

I will seek for what is good.

Our Father, thank you for surrounding me with wise men and women. Give me ears to hear what they have to say. Give me the self-discipline to go to them as often possible to find wisdom to reshape my thinking and to enhance my effectiveness. Amen.

Daily D – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
