Welcome to Day 1818 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

A Sense of Humor – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps.  We are on Day 1818 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. 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 Henry Ward Beecher, and it is, "A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs--jolted by every pebble in the road."

A Sense of Humor

Life is too short and absurd not to have a robust sense of humor. It’s good to laugh with others and at yourself as often as possible.  Granny and I share great laughs together every day. Usually, at something silly one or both of us have done or said. Humor not only makes life easier to live, but it is also  good for your body, mind, and soul.  Without humor, life is rough and can be miserable. A life without humor is like living with a pebble in your shoe, or riding in an old wagon without any springs or suspension. So be willing to laugh at yourself.  We all do silly things each day. A sense of humor is the oil of life’s engine. Without it, the machinery creaks and groans. No lot is so hard, no aspect of things is so grim, that it does not relax with a hearty laugh. So lighten up and laugh and live. Look for humor in everyday life. Psalm 126:2 We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy.  And the other nations said, “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.” 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.
