Embracing Wisdom: The Path to True Freedom




In a world filled with competing voices clamoring for our attention, Pastor Alan Young's timely message, "Don't Tell Me What To Do," sheds light on the importance of embracing wisdom over the allure of self-indulgence. Drawing insights from Psalm 81:11-16, Proverbs 13:15-17, and Proverbs 18:12-13, we embark on a journey to discover the transformative power of aligning our lives with God's wisdom.


  1. Embrace God's Guidance Over Self-Indulgence: Psalm 81:11-16 reminds us of the consequences of stubbornly rejecting God's guidance and pursuing our own desires. Instead of yielding to the fleeting pleasures of self-indulgence, we are called to embrace the wisdom of God's Word, which leads to true freedom and fulfillment. By aligning our lives with God's precepts, we experience the abundant life He promises, free from the bondage of sin and selfishness.

  2. Seek Wisdom Through Humility and Teachability: Proverbs 13:15-17 highlights the correlation between humility and wisdom, emphasizing the importance of being open to instruction and correction. True wisdom begins with a humble heart that is willing to acknowledge its limitations and learn from others. As we cultivate a spirit of teachability, God grants us insight and understanding, guiding us along the path of righteousness.

  3. Practice Prudence in Speech and Action: Proverbs 18:12-13 underscores the significance of exercising prudence in both our words and actions. Rather than impulsively reacting to situations, we are called to exercise self-control and discretion, considering the consequences of our choices. By guarding our tongues and exercising discernment, we avoid the pitfalls of folly and walk in the wisdom that leads to life.


In conclusion, as we navigate the complexities of life, let us heed the timeless wisdom found in God's Word. By embracing God's guidance over self-indulgence, seeking wisdom through humility and teachability, and practicing prudence in speech and action, we align our lives with the path of true freedom and fulfillment. Join us next Sunday as we continue to explore the transformative power of wisdom in our lives. #WisdomOverSelf #HumbleHeart #PrudentLiving
