Welcome to Day 1724 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

A Holy Life Shines – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1724 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 Dwight L. Moody, and it is: A holy life will produce the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.

A Holy Life Shines

As imagers of God, a lighthouse is such a great example of what our lives are to be like. It is God’s spirit that will draw a person to himself, we are to be a light to shine brightly and show the way. Our lives will only show the way when our light is not obstructed by sin. The keeper of the lighthouse had to make sure that the power source was in place to energize the light, and that the light was always clean so it would shine as brightly as possible. God’s Holy Spirit, who dwells in us, is the power source, and living lives unobstructed by sin will ensure that our light is shining each day brightly. We do not need to make a lot of noise, or create a lot of fanfare in order to reach others for Christ. We just need to keep shining each day. Stand your ground just as a lighthouse is built on a solid rock foundation. Be unmovable in your faith, while being flexible in your love for others. Live a life that is holy, which means to be set apart from God for His service. It is then you will make the deepest impression on others.

Mark 4:21-22

Then Jesus asked them, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine. For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.

 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.’
