The prudent man will always have words of wisdom and will be careful when speaking, he will act with respect towards others, when there is a conflict he knows how to speak so as not to make things worse, but above all, he acts with patience.
Why is this man talking like this? Because the wisdom that he carries is sent by God, so that he may be prudent and act with great diligence before the rest. But the man who is not prudent will not find wisdom because he only does what his thoughts dictate, acting with great pride, being negligent, with every word they speak they offend, but why does this happen? Because his pride and his ego are way above the rest. That is why chapter 10 of the book of proverbs says the following:
In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
Proverbs 10:13 (KJV)
Jesus once said: “For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks”, with these words we see that if we are not prudent we will speak whatever comes to mind, that is why we must guard our hearts.
The proverbist knew what he was saying in this proverb, as there were people in those times, because today they continue to be reckless, and lacking in the wisdom of the Lord.
When the wisdom of the Lord reaches our hearts, everything changes, we are filled with good things, of being patient, merciful, kind, fearful of God, and everything we are going to say will be a blessing for those around us, because the Our Lord’s wisdom is in each of our hearts.
