Discerning The Voice of God

Priscilla Shirer

do not slander or dishonor anyone

offer what you say and do,

and pray for guidance

about everything

wisdom is a whisper away



the wisdom that comes from heaven

is first of all pure.

it is also peace-loving,

gentle at all times,

and willing to yield to others.

it is full of mercy and good deeds.

it shows no partiality and is always sincere.

when we pick and choose

we are turning away.

stay in the moment
