This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

The Greatness Index – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1798 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 Zadok Rabinwitz, and it is, "A person’s dreams are an index to their greatness."

The Greatness Index

When speaking about a book, an index is an alphabetical list at the end of a book that shows the page where each item in the list can be found. An index is a pointer to where a particular record is located within a larger file or database in the computer programming world.  Indexes are handy, but it only points to another location. So it is with our dreams. We can have lofty dreams that represent our potential, but it is not the result. To achieve greatness and success of any kind, we need to take action to make the dreams become our reality. Yes, dreams are essential because they lay the groundwork necessary to achieve in life. So dream, and dream big. But understand that they are just the pointers or indexes to real success. James 1:22-25 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.  For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror.  You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.  But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. 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.
