Scripture Reading: John 7:1
After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
Reflections: Jesus altered his traveling plans at a point in time. In spite of His anointing, when He realized He could be killed in Judea before His time, He refrained from going there. He restricted Himself to traveling and ministering only around Galilee. This ensured that He lived on to fulfill His destiny in life. It is important to emulate this level of wisdom exhibited by Jesus. It speaks of far-sightedness. Far-sightedness is the ‘showing of prudent awareness of future possibilities’. It provides cues to inform your actions and decisions. A cue is a signal for action. By this you are able to either avoid danger or make use of opportunities. In life, you certainly need to operate with the wisdom of far-sightedness. Don’t ever ignore the cues it presents to you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to be far-sighted in life and to be informed by the cues it presents.
Confession: I am wise. I operate with far-sightedness. I am guided by the cues it presents.
