Discretion & Understanding

“Discretion will guard you, understanding will watch over you” (Pr 2:11)

Discretion and understanding go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Discretion is the ability to act thoughtfully and refrain from saying or doing something foolish.  Understanding is the ability to see the big picture, how the individual parts fit together and recognize other viewpoints.

The person that exhibits these two traits is better at life.  They will have more friends, make better life choices, and in general live a safer and happier life.  Not to mention the fact they will avoid being a nasty slanderous gossip or a foolish babbler.  I call that a win.

“Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.” (Pr 17:28)
