Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.— Proverbs 28:26
We have a choice to make. We can trust the thinking of our own minds governed by our sinful selves, or we can walk in the wisdom born from minds governed by the Spirit of God. With the first option we get to do things our own way, but the end result is death. With the second option we must humbly submit to the leading of the Spirit, but the end result is life.
The choice is ours.
