“Common sense is not so common.”

Make hay while the sun shines – that’s smart; go fishing during harvest- that’s stupid. Proverbs. 10:5

 

Even with a funny twist from the Message Bible, it is still a great truth! Everything we do should be done in wisdom.  Sometimes wisdom is spelled common sense.

Common sense => sound practical judgment- an internal sense, consists of what people… in common would agree on: that which they “sense” as their common natural understanding -sound judgment- good reasoning -ability to make sensible decisions.

If any lack wisdom, PROVERBS is a great place to start. Just ASK! God will open all the truths of this book for you to understand and follow.
~~~~~~

Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you. Proverbs 2:9-11

  2. Sometimes the “smartest” people are the ones who most lack “common sense.” Not always, of course, but sometimes! Thanks for this, Carley

    • Amen Carley,
      I believe that Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge in the right way. There are tons of people out there that have a noggin full of knowledge but don’t know the right way to use it or apply it. I think the same could be said of common sense.
      THANKS!

  3. that makes sense a lot.

    Deuteronomy 20:19 (NIV)
    When you lay siege to a city for a long time, fighting against it to capture it, do not destroy its trees by putting an ax to them, because you can eat their fruit. Do not cut them down.
    ARE THE TREES PEOPLE, THAT YOU SHOULD BESIEGE THEM?

    Matthew 22:28-30 (NIV)
    Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?

    Jesus replied, “YOU ARE IN ERROR BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW THE SCRIPTURE OR THE POWER OF GOD,
    At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage;

    on more here.. Ezekiel 18:25-30 (NIV)

    I heard a preacher said once. If you go to church on sunday,
    make sure to bring your brain with you.

    • Those are some good examples SBG. I love that saying … “bring your brain with you.” Some people don’t seem to realize that even the natural things that we do, or don’t do, have spiritual implications. Great examples.
      Grace & Peace be multiplied to you,
