He that Winneth Souls Is WISE. Are You Wise?

Happy Monday to my amazing readers and followers,

Myss Lafunky has had various questions and answers discussions with some of our readers and I really enjoyed them. I usually enjoy counselling singles and I love having thought-provoking discussions with my fellow Christians. It's my passion and ministry; I love seeing lives transformed and I love it when people take bold steps to stand up for God.  


Feel free to send in your questions and note that not all questions are shared on the blog, some are answered privately. I know some of you are sceptical of your story/issues being discussed on the blog as you don't want to be identified by your friends/family/relatives. I totally understand. 

Time for today's post.

As you know, I try to read a verse of the book of Proverbs everyday as I want to be wise in everything:)

I came across a verse in Proverbs 11:30, which states that: 'The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends' (NLT).

                  or 

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise (KJV).


Firstly..

The SEEDS OF GOOD DEEDS BECOME A TREE OF LIFE 

This means, a life that pleases the Lord and a life that bears fruits would yield results.

When a life that is pleasing the Lord is bearing good fruits (kindness, gentleness, honesty, humility, a life governed by love, calmness, hospitability, forgiving, helpful, truthful, patience etc.), such life is likely to influence the lives of others positively.

Such a life will win the trust, affection and faith of others.

Secondly..


                                           And he who wins souls is wise

To win soul takes a lot of effort, it is a task that requires persistence, wisdom, openness, consistency, availability, above all, the life of the individual that wants to win soul must be governed by the Word of God; a life that lives by God's principles.

Are you willing to win others to Christ by your way of  life?  
Can you confidently state that, your actions and words are winning people to Christ? 
Are you willing to be guided by God in the place of winning souls?
When last did you share the good news to unbelievers?

Want to read an account of someone in the Bible that won people to Christ and his lives pleased the Lord? Kindly take time to read Galatians 1-2 and Acts 22-28, it's about Paul.
