Having a Backbone – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1754 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 Robert Kiyosaki, and it is, “A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That’s where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It’s having backbone.”
Having a Backbone
It is okay to be gentle and meek, which is not the same as being weak. It is certainly okay to always tell the truth and when you need to say no to requests or demands. However, when you stand on your principles, focus, and priorities, you may have to say no to what is good so that you can say yes to what is best. Remember that when you choose no, it automatically opens up the possibility of saying yes to something even more incredible.
When you have to say no to something that may compromise your ethics and integrity, you are not mean to the other person; you are standing for what you deem the truth and what is best for you. You must make choices based on God’s will for you and what is best for yourself and your family. That is not shunning others or being a bully; you have a backbone and stand up for your principles. Stand strong.
James 1:22-25But 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.
