The Wisdom of a Man

Posted on Updated on

Man Kneeling in PrayerBlessed is the man who is wise enough to acknowledge the hand of Almighty God in all things. Only a fool could believe that all things are wrought by his own hands.

Blessed is the man who is wise enough to be willing to be teachable and to learn from that which he is taught by precept and experience. Only a fool could believe that he himself knows it all. Instead of appearing to be wise, such a man is clearly seen to be a fool.

Live Like ChristBlessed is the man who acknowledges the value of others and learns to treat each person with dignity and respect – just as he himself would want to be treated. Only a fool could endeavor to isolate himself from the help of others. His empire will crumble under the weight of his own self-righteousness, egotism, and pride.

Blessed is the man who is wise enough to stand for what he believes and to know that he is right without lording “victory” over his adversary. Only a fool becomes crass and overbearing in making his stand, reaping disharmony and contention, and destroying whatever potential his position might have offered.
