January 26 / Proverbs 26 / Matthew 26

waych & pray

Proverbs 26:4-5

Have discernment to know when to just keep quiet with foolish, kingdom-of-this-world-talking people so as not to become part of the problem and add to the cacophony. Yet also be attuned to the Spirit to recognize the right time to speak truth and silence the foolish talk.

Matthew 26:41

Keep watch and pray so that you don’t give in to temptation.

This is the best, simplest advice ever, when you think about it.

While you are praying, you are alert.

While you are praying, you are awake to God.

While you are praying, you are aware of yourself…and temptation.

Jesus’ admonitions to Christian life can almost always find their first fulfillment in the simple loyalty of prayer. -Frederick Dale Bruner
