“A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; he rages against all wise judgment.” Proverbs 18:1

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” Galatians 5:22

Intellectual and spiritual proficiency implies exertions that must, for the most part, be made amidst the tranquility of retirement. There the soul escapes from the interruptions so prevalent in the world, loses its prejudices, finds leisure to open the stores of knowledge, and communes most intimately with its God. Those persons have little prospect of attaining true wisdom who seek it only, or even chiefly, in the scene of public ordinances.

The Lord was not in the strong wind, nor in the earthquake, nor in the fire — but in the still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-12). The wisdom which He imparts is practical and engaging. It softens the character, permitting nothing to attach but what is lovely and of good report. It fills the possessor with sacred peace and diffuses around him kindness and joy. It makes him like Jesus, the personal wisdom of God. O that all the Lord’s people sought this sanctifying wisdom! Lord, give it to me in great abundance.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
