You would think that working with a large, reputable Insurance company should result in safe and consistent benefits. but beware — read the small print! I missed some small print, and was horrified to discover the insurance folks had started an $1100 per month auto withdrawal from my checking account! Of course, I can deal with it, now that I am aware of it. It brings to mind a proverbs passage on wisdom:
1 Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
Wisdom, personified. The more we understand, the better we can be at responding.
2 At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
In my case, my judgement relaxed. I needed to keep an eye on the place where the paths meet.
3 beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud:
At the very point when I go into transaction, wisdom cries out — “Be careful!”
4 “To you, O people, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.
All of mankind needs wisdom. not just a few.
5 You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.
We need to recognize that when we are taken advantage of, part of the fault is our own. We need
to be prudent, and not simpletons.
6 Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.
We have a choice to ignore, or listen carefully. There is truth in what we can trust.
7 My mouth speaks what is true, for my lips detest wickedness.
We should pray to be the source or wisdom and truth. Speak wisely, and with truthfulness.
8 All the words of my mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse.
Wisdom is always good, it is not something we should pollute or twist around. Keep it as it is.
