Not Old – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1775 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 Barrymore, and it is, “A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.”
It doesn’t matter your biological age; you can still be young and vibrant as long as you hold onto your dreams. Your age is just a number, and until you start regretting what you have done or feel that you are too old to reach your dreams, you will still have a youthful disposition and outlook on life that no one can pluck from your hand. So dream big and then take action to reach those dreams.
Always do your best. Your best will change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret. We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end. The past is a great place, and I don’t want to erase it or regret it, but I don’t want to be its prisoner either. So regardless of the past, leave it there. Press forward to become all that God intended you to be.
As they were walking along, someone said to Jesus, “I will follow you wherever you go.”But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.”He said to another person, “Come, follow me.”The man agreed, but he said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.”But Jesus told him, “Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead! Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God.”Another said, “Yes, Lord, I will follow you, but first let me say good-bye to my family.”But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”
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.
