A person is praised according to their prudence, but one with a warped mind is despised – Proverbs 12:8
Some places where this is discussed in Proverbs:
Proverbs 12:5, 11:23, 28.
We all like a good laugh over silly behaviour but when it comes to real life decisions, even the world seeks for wisdom. When money, reputation, or family is on the line, no one likes a bad decision maker in their life. In this proverb we see the prudent is a compared with a warped mind. Life is no laughing matter. It is fleeting and good sense is in order to properly spend time here. Let’s pray to God for him to make us all people of prudence.
