Scripture: Proverbs 20:15
Much gold and many pearls exist, but wise speech is the most precious jewel.
Thought for the Day: In recent weeks, I have been watching some lectures on scientific discoveries from the last couple of centuries and the implication of those discoveries. It makes me realize how little I actually know. Even more so, I have gained a greater appreciation of those who challenged old ways of thinking, put forth what must have sounded like outlandish hypotheses, and then tested them toward recognition as scientifically trusted theories. What we know as individuals is always important, but honesty in regards to what we do not know might be even more important. I believe the wise are those who acknowledge and own what they do not know. And if that is the case, I wonder if the “wise speech” that is “the more precious jewel” is in fact the capacity to ask a good question.
Prayer: May I never become so overly confident in what I know that I forget what I do not know. Merciful and Gentle God, keep me humble even if you need to knock me down a peg or two. Amen.
