Welcome to Day 1856 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Accept, Support, and Encourage – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1856 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. So 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 says, "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 an Unknown Source, and it is, "A true friend is someone who accepts your past, supports your present, and encourages your future."

Accept, Support, And Encourage

Too often, we are prone to judge, abandon, and discourage others, even if we consider them to be our friends. As Christ-followers, this should never be. Although we may have to live with the consequences of past actions, good and bad, we can never go back and change what has already been done. Therefore, there is no need to judge others, especially friends, for what they did in the past. God forgives our past and remembers them no more, and we should be willing to do the same. We then need to love and support our friends in the present. If you genuinely love them and see them making unwise decisions, you need to love them enough to carefully advise them and pray with them. Finally, we should always be encouraging to others, especially our friends. Encourage and help them achieve their dreams for their future. Be supportive, loving, kind, and above all, help them walk humbly with our God. Philippians 2:1-4 Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ?  Any comfort from his love?  Any fellowship together in the Spirit?  Are your hearts tender and compassionate?  Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others.  Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.  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 our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
