Saturday's Wisdom Dose - 7th April 2012

 

  
Words of Wisdom  







"A wise man (Person) will hear, and will increase
learning;" - Proverbs 1:5 (KJV).

One of the best pieces of advice I received as a
young man was from a minister who said to me,
"Every young man should read a chapter of Proverbs
in the Bible every day." I did this for many years
and learned many truths as a result. I still
appreciate proverbs both in and outside of the Bible.
A proverb is a proverbial saying, or as Webster
defines it, "A short popular saying that expresses
an obvious truth." We call them one-liners today.

One of my hobbies is to collect proverbial
one-liners. The following are some which convey
valuable nuggets of truth.

Winston Churchill: "The farther backwards you can
look the farther forward you are likely to see."

Arnold Toynbee: "An autopsy of history is that all
great nations commit suicide."

Henry David Thoreau: "If a man does not keep pace
with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears
a different drummer. Let him step to the music which
he hears, however measured or far away."

Larry McMurty: "It is impossible to impress a people
with truths that they aren't ready to hear, much
less accept."

Isaac Newton: "What we know is a drop. What we don't
know is an ocean."

Richard Lamm: "Our moral compass gyrates wildly."

Rabbi Mervin Romsky: "He is a failure as a human
being, no matter what his other achievements,
whose heart does not hurt for his fellow man.
And he is a successful human being, no matter
where else he may be lacking, who is rich in
compassion."

Prayer: "Our Loving Father in Heaven, please give
me a heart for wisdom, a love for truth, a desire
for learning your Word, and a passion for living
and walking in truth. Thank you for hearing and
answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving
Name I Pray, Amen."
