Admit Your Mistakes – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1779 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 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 John Maxwell, and it is, “A person must be big enough to admit their mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.”

Admit Your Mistakes

There are a lot of people who do not want to take responsibility for the mistakes they make. Instead, they would rather play the victim card and blame someone or something else for the mistakes or errors they make in life. We should not be that way. Before God and our fellow humans, we need to accept complete responsibility for mistakes, errors in judgment, and sins that crop up in our lives. We need to humbly admit them to others, learn the lessons gained from those mistakes, and then have the fortitude to correct the issues, so we do not repeat those same mistakes. It does take a confident yet humble person to own up to our flaws so that we can grow beyond them. Our confidence comes from our standing before God, knowing that we are utilizing our God-given talents and abilities to do the best we can. When we realize that we have fallen short, we need to take the lessons learned and do even better the next time. In all things, let us give God the glory for all He has accomplished in our lives. James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. 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.
