The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30 KJV)
You may have heard that the scripture from Proverbs 11:30 is talking about winning souls to God, but in reality, the writer (Solomon) of this scripture is communicating that a person that would gain other people’s confidence and trust is wise. As believers of Jesus Christ, we have a responsibility of conducting ourselves wisely among those that are candidates for salvation. As we gain their confidence and trust through our faith that is in Jesus Christ, it will ultimately lead them to the Lord if we maintain the integrity of the nature and character of God.
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise. (Ephesians 5:15 KJV)
