Teach a wise man, and he will be the wiser; teach a good man, and he will learn more. For the reverence and fear of God are basic to all wisdom. Knowing God results in every other kind of understanding. “I, Wisdom, will make the hours of your day more profitable and the years of your life more fruitful.” Wisdom is its own reward, and if you scorn her, you hurt only yourself. Proverbs 9:9-12 LB

Life is too short to learn every lesson of life by personal experience. Humility to learn from others will prevent you from certain traumas in life. Reverence for God and His word will make you wise and give you divine understanding of time and seasons of life.

There is no true wisdom outside Jesus Christ, no true knowledge apart from doing the will of God and no true life apart from living only for Jesus and His purposes.

The only way you can be happy, and be fulfilled in life is to allow Jesus Christ to guide, direct and lead you through the life’s pilgrimage that is full of dangerous bends, potholes and various deceptions.

Apart from Jesus Christ every hour of your day is meaningless and every year of your life will be unproductive. May the Lord God help you this day to surrender your life fully to Jesus and allow Him to guide you as your faithful and good Shepherd. Have a blessed weekend.

Your brother,
