Help Meet Practical Game Rule #4 ~ To Be Discreet

One usually thinks of discretion as the ability to avoid saying or doing that which is inappropriate ~ to know when and how to conduct oneself so as not to offend. 

The Greek word is in other instances translated as “behavior” and “judgement”. 

Discretion, therefore is, having good tastes….good judgement….useful….to be of good understanding. 

 

Let’s carefully examine discretion in all its many aspects…..

 

Seek to be Courteous

Discretion is being considerate of others. 

A discreet person is one who handles another person’s resources with grave carefulness and honesty. 

When you are discreet, wise and kind in your dealings with other people, you will reap the benefits throughout life. 

Seek to be Honest

Discretion is good judgement. 

If a woman uses her friends by asking unnecessary favors or by borrowing and not returning, she is showing a lack of basic courtesy, which is an important element of discretion. 

Seek to be Gracious

Discretion is good taste.

Though our husbands don’t make decisions that we would or how we would, we must choose to be gracious.  Gracious, that they are trying and doing things for us or our family.

Seek ways that you can live discreetly……keeping in mind……..                         

Proverbs 11:22

“As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.”
