Welcome to Day 1967 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Choose Life – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1967 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 Jewish Teaching, and it is: Always Choose Life

Choose Life

There is much about whose life is precious or sacred in the public narrative. The fact is that God created all life, so all life is precious. If we have the option of promoting life or activities that minimize the value of life, then we must always choose life. This is true of all needless taking of life. This is true of the animal kingdom, where we should only take life when it is necessary for feeding or protecting humankind. Since humans are created to be imagers of God, there are few exceptions to always choosing life. This principle includes the life of the unborn, the aged, and the lives of every ethnic group in the world. Unless it is in self-defense and there is no other alternative, we should do all we can to preserve life. Life is precious because we are created as imagers of God. The basic principle is always to choose life because all lives matter. It is that simple. Deuteronomy 30:19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! 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.’
