Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 702 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Tempered Knowledge – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week, wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 702 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Peter Ritchie Calder, and it is, “Wisdom is knowledge tempered with judgment.”
It is great to have knowledge, vast amounts of knowledge. But knowledge in and of itself has minimal value unless it comes coupled with a good dose of judgment. Knowledge with good judgment is what we refer to as common sense. It is evident as we observe life that common sense is not all that common. It is that valuable and rare trait in a person who is able to expound on truths and facts in such a way that they don’t come off as arrogant. It requires judgment to speak only when it adds value to a person or circumstance. As knowledge and judgment are coupled together in a person, that person gains wisdom, insight, and understanding.
Since all truth comes from God, common sense is also His gift to us if we learn and understand His precepts found in His Word.
Proverbs 2:7 – He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.
Proverbs 3:21-22 – My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul. They are like jewels on a necklace.
That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged. If you enjoy these quotes, I have created and published a searchable database of over 10,000 quotes that I have collected for many years. If you would like free access to my database of inspirational quotes the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
