Wiser Today – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1784 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 Alexander Pope, and it is, “A person should never be ashamed to admit that they are in the wrong, which is but saying they are wiser today than they were yesterday.”
We will all make mistakes and be wrong about many things in our life. Unfortunately, too many times, we are reluctant to admit our mistakes and wrongdoings. It is a pride issue where we do not want other people to find out that we may have flaws or act incorrectly. However, we have to realize that others will most likely know already, and all we are doing by attempting to hide it is making ourselves look even more foolish.
So let us be quick to admit our mistakes and failures when they happen. Errors and losses are not only unavoidable; they are a prime source of wisdom from the lessons we can learn from them. When we are wrong about something, it provides us with an automatic lesson on how to improve. Never waste an opportunity to learn. Take every setup and obstacle in your path as the lessons they are. Never be too proud to admit your mistakes and errors; you will be wiser if you just learn from them.
James 3:17-18But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
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.
