Prudence is growing in knowledge. It is making the effort to learn something new and using that information or skill, whether you enjoy that skill or not. God describes the prudent in the Bible in book of Proverbs 18:15 "The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge." In Proverbs 16:21 its says "The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and sweetness of the lips increaseth learning." Fear causes us to pay attention to what God says, knowing that he is very serious in his blessings and his curisngs.

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

What brings satisfaction?

As Christian we are to be content in all things. Phil. 4:11

Looking for positive things in life, what has God done for us individually, keeping it in mind helps to overcome difficult tasks in life.

Avoiding talking negatively about others and instead praising and giving thanks, helps our mind to be pure and filled with gratitude.

The condition of the mind affects the health of the physical system. If the mind is free and happy, from consciousness of rightdoing and a sense of satsifaction in causing happiness to others, it creates a cheerfulness that will react upon the whole system, causing a freer circulation of the blood and a toning up of the entire body. The blessing of God is a healing power, and those who are abundant in benefiting others will realize that wondrous blessing in both heart and life. (CCh 216.2)
