Dear prudence, won’t you come out to play?
Both well-intentioned and ill-intentioned people can use insight and judgement to achieve their ends… and in essence, this is prudence.
Thus, a well-intentioned person cannot solely rely on faith alone; or, one must expand the meaning of “faith” to include the synthesis of a reasonable mind and an empathetic heart. If faith means to have holistic trust on another, then doesn’t faith require both heart and mind?
A full faith demands us to let our prudence come out and play.
Luke 16:1-8. “For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than the children of light.”
