I’m a very cautious person. No doubt about it. Last evening, as I prayed alone in our church, I walked. As I walked, I looked down and discovered a wonderful mosaic owl, peering up at me from the processional floor. The owl (in my mind) spoke one word: wisdom. It started me thinking. I proceed with caution. When attentiveness to possible danger, minimizing risk, and carefulness of action are my central focus, I lose my connection with God and other people. But what if I were to proceed with wisdom? According to James 3:17, wisdom is peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, and without partiality and hypocrisy. Seems to me the safer way to live.
