Wisdom and Forethought in Our Actions

We must not listen to every saying or suggestion, but with caution and patience we should ponder everything in keeping with the will of God.

But alas!—- it is our weakness that we often rather believe and speak evil of others than believe and speak good.

Those that are perfect do not easily believe everything that a person tells them, for they know that human frailty is prone to evil and likely to be defective when the person speaks.

It is great wisdom not to hurry in your course of actions, and not to be obstinate about your own opinions;

It is also great wisdom not to believe everything that you hear, and not to immediately tell others what you have heard or believe.

Consult with the person who is wise and conscientious, and seek the advise of those who are better than yourself rather than depending on your own resources.

Living a good life makes us wise before God, and gives us experiences in many things.

The more humble we are in ourselves, and the more subject we are to God, the more prudent we will be in all our affairs, and the more we will enjoy peace and quiet in our hearts.
