Day 61: Treasure Common Sense

Proverbs 2:7-8

He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him.


“Common sense is as rare as genius.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

God gives the true treasure of common sense to those who are honest. Honesty is a foundational pillar of wisdom. No man will ever leave a lasting legacy who has not lived with integrity. History has a way of bringing out the truth of a man’s life and isn’t kind to the man who did not deal honestly.

I had a relative that wasn’t an honest man. In fact, he was a liar. He would make up stories, not for the sake of humor or in jest, he simply would not tell the truth. I don’t know why. I don’t know his motivations, but I know it was embarrassing because the truth would be revealed. He was a pretender.

Our Advisor tells us that integrity serves as a shield. God has a protection plan for those who are just and faithful to Him.

Job said, “Let God weigh me on the scales of justice, for he knows my integrity.” (Job 31:6)

Job went through a rough time but held onto his integrity through it all – even after his wife mocked him asking, “are you still holding onto your integrity? Curse God and die.”

Job held onto his integrity and established his legacy.
