I had a wonderful talk with my father at the Father/Daughter retreat about foolishness and maturity, and the aspects of both. He suggested several ways for me to mature a bit in my own life, and reminded me that as a nearly 18-year-old young lady, I am a role model for the younger girls in my circle of acquaintances.
This really brought a new awareness to how I view my interaction with others.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise. - Proverbs 12:15
A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. - Proverbs 29:11
Have you ever done that? I have. "Uttered all that was in my mind". And later I regret it, but words once spoken can't be taken back. A sobering thought.
My dear friends, two very wise young ladies, Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin have once again done a post very timely to what was going on in my life, and this time they've created an excellent quiz. I highly encourage you to go take it, answer the 13 questions honestly, and use it as a soul-searching tool to brighten up any unpolished areas you might have in your life.
Soli Deo Gloria!
