From Charles Spurgeon's Morning and Evening:

The Guidance of God

"He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he."
--Proverbs 16:20

Wisdom is man's true strength; and, under its guidance, he best accomplishes the ends of his being. Wisely handling the matter of life gives to man the richest enjoyment, and presents the noblest occupation for his powers; hence by it he finds good in the fullest sense. Without wisdom, man is as the wild ass's colt, running hither and thither, wasting strength which might be profitably employed.

Lord, help me to handle matters wisely, so that I will not waste the strength You have given me, but will "accomplish the ends of my being:" the things You have put me on earth to do!
