Prudential means exercising “sound judgment” or prudence. Prudence pertains to careful good judgment that allows someone to avoid danger or risks. Further, prudence could be understood as 1) the ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason; 2) the sagacity or shrewdness in the management of affairs; 3) the skill and good judgment in the use of resources; and/or 4) caution or circumspection as to danger or risk.

Prudence therefore could be synonymous to wisdom – good judgment and discretion based from the WORD of GOD. Hence, a prudential life is guided and grounded in the HOLY SCRIPTURES.
Psalm 1 (NIV)
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
