“Sterling Principle #26”
“Eat honey, dear child—it’s good for you!” Proverbs 24: 13
AND, according to Solomon this morning, so is wisdom! He says, “Just as honey is sweet to your taste, so wisdom is sweet to your soul.” “If you find it,” that’s wisdom, not honey, “you will have future hope that cannot and will not be cut off.”
A mentor earlier in my life defined wisdom as, “Seeing and responding to life from God’s perspective.” Knowledge is the accumulation of information; wisdom is knowing what to do with that information in a way that is consistent with God’s ideals and goals. The assurance of my future is, according to Solomon, dependent on my willingness to use my knowledge in a way that pleases God. I can live with that!
Have a great day enjoying the sweet reward of being wise enough to make choices in harmony with God’s will,
PS Remember there is no vespers in the church tonight. Hopefully by now you have been invited to some staff member’s home for supper and an evening “around the fire” welcoming in the Sabbath. If you have not been invited, don’t take it personally! Stop by Campus Ministries THIS MORNING and we’ll get you set up.
PPS No rolls at Foggs tonight, or any other after vespers activities planned by Campus Ministries because of soup suppers.
Quote for the day: “Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you, inspire you, encourage you, enhance you, and make you happy. If you have people who do none of the above, let them go. If you have people who do, keep them close and reciprocate.”
