A Sunday Thought~ 9 Godly Traits
|9 Godly Traits that I want to have.|
This past week I have been thinking about Godly traits that I think I need. I have been studying about wisdom in my Bible. As I seek to be a better wife, mom, and friend, I want to access all the wisdom that only God can give me.
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.
These traits that I want to have include:
I want to fear the Lord.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
I want to be teachable.
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
I want to watch my mouth. I want to talk less and I want my speech to build up and encourage others.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
I want to stay away from sin. I know that sin will pull you in. I want to make sure that I recognize these pulls and weaknesses and keep myself out of the temptations they might provide.
A wise man fearth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
I want to guide my heart in the right direction. I want to make sure that I make that I am focused on Godly things and not worldly things.
Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
I want to make sure I examine all my choices. I want to consider how these choices, whether they are big or small daily decisions, will impact my future here, and in eternity.
O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
I want to make sure that I am careful in my choice of friends.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
I want to make sure that I know that everything that happens in my life is in God’s hand.
For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them.
These 9 Godly traits are what I want to focus my life around each and everyday. I am praying that the holy spirit will help me grow in wisdom that I will be a Godly christian woman, mom, wife and friend that He would have me to be.
Happy Monday Friends!!
