The Wise Are Not Lonely – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1870 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and 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 Jonathan Swift, and it is, “A wise man is never less alone than when he is alone.”

The Wise Are Not Lonely

Those truly wise are not dependent on being with other people to be at peace and find contentment. They understand that they are never alone because God is with them, regardless of their current situation. Yes, we all like the company and fellowship of others, but we should not depend on it for contentment. We are created to be relational, just as God chose to create and fellowship with us.  Still, peace of mind and heart are only found in our relationship with God because all earthly relationships will fail to provide what we need at some point or another. Therefore, the wise continually accumulate Godly wisdom throughout their lives, and the wiser they become, the more comfortable they are with being alone with their wisdom. So if you find yourself lonely much of the time, it would be best to invest your life to gain wisdom. It will provide the peace and contentment that you desire. Proverbs 4:5-9 Get wisdom; develop good judgment. Don’t forget my words or turn away from them. Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you. She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
