Wisdom has become a scarce commodity in our societies these days.
Many people prefer to follow their personal feelings and gratify every passion without even taking time to apply genuine wisdom and guidance to what they do.
Anything done outside reasoning leads to doom. The tragedy that follows folly could initially be fulfilling. But the end thereof is disastrous.
One may wonder how we can acquire this wisdom, well, it’s found in no other place than the Holy Bible.
In Ephesians 5:15-16 – the Bible says, Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
True wisdom comes from God. He alone can order your steps and direct your path. The opening scripture makes us understand that, we are living in evil days. Don’t undermine the prowess of the devil. He will take hold of you when you least expect it. But if you rely on the Bible, you will surmount all of these earthly challenges.
Successful people have two things on their lips, “smile and silence”. Smile can solve a problem, Silence can avoid problems. Sugar and salt may be mixed together but ants reject the salt and carry away only the sugar. Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweeter.
If you fail to achieve your dreams, change your ways not your God. Remember, trees change their leaves and not their roots. You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.
Haters will see you walking on water and say it’s because you can’t swim. Even if you dance on water, your enemies will accuse you of raising dust. Make it your ambition to live a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your own hands. Remember, don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.
Most times you have to keep your mouth shut, not because you don’t have anything to say, but because it’s not the best moment to talk. Sometimes you have to allow people to think negatively of you, not because you can’t defend yourself but because no matter what you say or do, it will never change their wrong opinion about you.
In conclusion, you sometimes have to pretend you don’t know something. Not because you want to deceive anyone but because you want to learn from others. At times you have to let others win an argument. Not because you cannot dispute their point, but so that you can have peace.
