Prudence Protects

“I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behaviour and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have insight, I have power. Proverbs 8  (NIV)

In ancient times, temperance, wisdom, justice, and courage were considered most desirable character traits. Temperance relates to discretion, restraint or self-control; in life, there are some things we serve and others we master. It’s usually your choice who or which you serve, leisure, pleasure, ambition, emotions, appetite, money, family etc. Remember everything affects everything else, nothing stands alone. Don’t be mastered by the wrong stuff.

A sense of justice controls an individual’s interaction with others. Sound judgement relates to being able to decide based on observable attributes devoid of emotion or personal prejudice. Most people hold a subjective point of view; they can only see things from their own narrow perspective.  Counsel and sound judgement trains you to be objective at all times, hence you are able to see things for what they are by taking various viewpoints around the same issue.

Courage speaks of the ability to proceed on a worthy course regardless of fear or trepidations we may feel deep inside. Prudence on the other hand is the virtue that helps to temper rashness especially when we feel able. Strength and confidence sometimes tends towards arrogance, prudence helps to prevent a disaster.

At the battle of Cannae; 216BC, the Roman army suffered what was probably their heaviest defeat ever as they lost to Hannibal the Carthaginian general. The carnage could have been prevented but for the rashness and pride Varro the roman commander.  Prudence is especially relevant in the place of perceived strength.

You shall not be lured into an ambush, prudence and discretion shall preserve you.

I'm impressed with your thoughts and generosity. It is good that you are not attracted to evil and try to be down to earth which is a more likely thing in front of God. Please keep maintaining this attitude forever.
