The Practice of Wisdom

Our actions are not to be determined by the behavior of knuckleheads.

Or maybe think of it this way. We must not let sorry rascals teach us how to live. The story of Joseph from Genesis teaches by example. Joseph even though sold into slavery by his brothers forgave them. He believed and reminded them that what they intended for evil God intended for good.

That’s the way of wisdom. That’s the way to peace with God.

Pastor Rick Stevens can be heard Saturday and Sunday at 8 AM ET on the iHeart Radio Network. Find all the Faith is…with Pastor Rick Stevens episodes also available on the America Out Loud Podcast Network.

Thank you for this perspective reset, I appreciate you “ex-cogitating” with your listeners, Pastor Rick.
I ex-cogitate with the Lord over everything, and it always helps. I love it that He cares to give us His thoughts on the matter.
I have a number of situations involving injustice and have need of God’s wisdom (and help).
One involves my father who lives in another state, and is trying to manipulate me with my dead mother’s jewellery. I haven’t spoken to him for two years because of his manipulations and disrespect.

Yet, I don’t want to be a Christian doormat either. I was groomed to believe that that was normal, but no more.
I installed a rigid No Contact regime with my toxic Narcissist sister in 2012 (with the Lord’s prompting) to save my sanity.

We certainly need God’s wisdom, and we always want to do what pleases Him.
Thank you again.🇭🇲

Is Going to Heaven Like Moving to Florida?

Do you anticipate the return of Jesus with anxious dread or hopeful anticipation? The Bible reminds us to look for our redemption because it’s near! Jesus teaches us that we should not be afraid. We should be ready. God is moving into our neighborhood! He’ll be the best neighbor ever…

The Hostile Agenda That Created an Economic Disaster

The Hostile Agenda That Created an Economic Disaster

Americans see the failed policies, one after the next. The Border Crisis, Foreign Policy, Afghanistan Withdrawal, Green-Energy Failures, Energy Dependence, COVID Mandates and Overreach, Law and Order, Crime Surging, Economic Ruins, Rising Inflation, CRT, War on Parents… pick a policy, and you see failure. Will America become a stronger nation on the other side of this trainwreck?

Weaponizing Disinformation Against the People

Weaponizing Disinformation Against the People

Rather than assumptions and hyperbole, we have their own words proving that they intend to take away our Freedoms of Speech and Press. Now that we have facts, what are the American people doing about it? Isn’t it about time that the American people not only demand that our servants in government enforce the law but punish those who violate it?

Proof of Why America Is Not a Democracy

Proof of Why America Is Not a Democracy

John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison all warned us about the dangers of democracies, that they are turbulent, dangerous, and never last long. If you want proof of the dangers of democracy, you need only look at the reaction to the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion…
