No Shades of Gray – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1737 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Proverbs 16:16How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:
Today’s quote is from G. Alan Bernard,and it is: A leader not only stays above the line between right and wrong, but he also remains well clear of the gray areas.
No Shades of Gray
When you are leading others with integrity, there is no room for questionable or gray areas in the decisions you make and the values you stand for. Therefore, you must stay above reproach and never dabble with any questionable areas of life. I realize that at times, decisions are not always crystal clear, and there can be various interpretations of what is right or wrong, but you should have a clear understanding in your mind of where you draw the line in your decision-making. If you are drifting towards that line into the gray areas of life, you need to change course and remain well clear of those areas where there are shades of gray. It is much better to stand firmly for what is right than to err towards what some may interpret as wrong. The passage for today was written explicitly to those who desire to be leaders within a church situation. The same should apply to any area of life because we should all aspire to this level as Christ-followers.
This is a trustworthy saying: “If someone aspires to be a church leader, he desires an honorable position.” So a church leader must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money. He must manage his own family well, having children who respect and obey him. For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God’s church?
