Prudent Men Deal with Know How

Blessings from BSM (Bible Study Ministry), today is a very brief bid of wisdom to remember and keep in your mental arsonal. Shall we look at a couple of scriptures? It is essential to know how something works or operates. In order to have know-how, one must be prudent!

16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

Prudent people deal with knowledge. They deal with things they know about; they speak on things they have knowledge in. If they don’t know about it, the gain the knowledge to become prudent. The fool speaks on everything, laying open his folly to the world.

17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.

We used to call this hero ball or the “suck up.” The wicked messenger falls into misconduct because these types of people are always trying to play hero ball. They want to be important by bringing a message or news. So they may spice it up or twist a few things to get a few extra “oohs” and “ahhhs” from the story …

…and some “she didn’t say that girl, for real,” so everyone knows them as the person with the “spicy news” or message. They fall into mischief because of their lies or adlibs. They are termed wicked for this.

Every Prudent man dealeth with knowledge

On the other end of this, a faithful ambassador is health. Why is such a person health? Primarily because they are faithful. You can count on them. They will only report what they were given. Remember Jesus, He would constantly say that He is only going to speak on what His Father has given Him to speak on, and not a word more.

Jesus is the Faithful Ambassador, and Jesus has taught us how to be faithful ambassadors also. Do likewise as the Captain of our Salvation. Always remember, prudent men deal with know how!
