Know Yourself – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1786 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 16:16  How 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 St. Francis, and it is: A person that does not know themself, is not known.

Know Yourself

One significant issue with so many people who live without a proper perspective of who they are as part of God’s creation, struggle with themselves and their identity.  We are created as an imager of God, and if we do not recognize and comprehend what this means, we cannot honestly image God as we should.   Without the supreme confidence that we are God’s masterpiece, we will continually struggle with self-identity.  We will try to be someone of value based on our accomplishments.  Ultimately this will lead to failure and disappointment in ourselves and all whom we interact with.  It is time to know yourself through the marvelous grace that God provided to us through His son, our savior, Jesus Christ.  If we cannot love and accept ourselves, we cannot love or accept other people in our lives.  Know yourself as an imager of God. Ephesians 2:8-10 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.  Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.  For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1785 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at  I encourage you to subscribe to Wisdom-Trek on your favorite podcast player so that each day’s trek will be downloaded automatically.
