“Common sense is not so common.”

Make hay while the sun shines – that’s smart; go fishing during harvest- that’s stupid. Proverbs. 10:5

Even with a funny twist from the Message Bible, it is still a great truth! Everything we do should be done in wisdom and sometimes wisdom is spelled common sense. Common sense – sound practical judgment- an internal sense, consists of what people in common would agree on: that which they “sense” as their common natural understanding -sound judgment- good reasoning -ability to make sensible decisions.

If any lack wisdom, PROVERBS  is a great place to start. Just ASK! God will open all the truths of this book for you to understand and follow.


Then you will understand what is right and just
   and fair—every good path. 
For wisdom will enter your heart,
   and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 
Discretion will protect you,
   and understanding will guard you.   Proverbs 2:9-11




  1. Common sense does seem to be less common all the time. Good advice you offer here.
