Since every aspect of life is influenced by our capacity to make wise, godly judgements, it’s essential that we read the Bible and heed the instruction of our pastors. The truths we learn become a filter for everything we see, hear, and experience. Then, if we encounter error, our internal alarm will go off to protect us from deception. We all need help when it comes to wisdom. So we can ask the Lord today to guide us away from self-reliance and towards His holy Word.
