Buy truth

Buy the truth and sell it not; not only that, but also get discernment and judgment, instruction and understanding. (Book of Proverbs, Chapter 23, Verse 23, Amplified Version)

Oh, Lord, help me fathom this one. I need to understand the truth and I really, really need discernment and judgment. I need to hear good and timely instruction. I need to acquire understanding.

Wow, it seems a likely answer to this one has come. Its like the Guided Decision in Andy Andrews’ Mastering the Seven Decisions.¬†I will seek wisdom! Andy says read a lot. Seek good counsel. Talk to smart people. So Lord, please guide me to the right books, the right counsel and the right people!

In case you are interested, here is a list of the Seven Decisions:

  • The Responsible Decision: The buck stops here. I accept responsibility for my past. I am responsible for my success. I will not let my history control my destiny.
  • The Guided Decision: I will seek wisdom.
  • The Active Decision: I am a person of action.
  • The Certain Decision: I have a decided heart. Criticism, condemnation, and complaint have no power over me.
  • The Joyful Decision: Today I will choose to be happy.
  • The Compassionate Decision: I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit.
  • The Persistent Decision: I will persist without exception.

Be blessed!
