Welcome to Day 1906 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Measure Greatness – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1906 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and 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  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 Lou Holtz, and it is: Adversity is another way to measure the greatness of individuals. I never had a crisis that didn’t make me stronger.

Measure Greatness

People usually don’t think of measuring greatness by the amount of adversity they or others experience, but it is often the driving force behind any greatness achieved. So while we may not seek out adversity, because that is never pleasant, we should not be overwhelmed by it either. We need to view adversity through the proper lens, that it is a tool or lesson that will mature and refine us, so that we will be stronger. A crisis may seem to cripple us initially, especially if it is unexpected; if we draw our strength on God through the crisis, the crisis will make us stronger. Our strength comes from God, and it is He who will sustain us and make us stronger through the process. James 1:2-4  Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’
