A Kind Word Is Never Thrown Away – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 722 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 Sir Arthur Helps, and it is, “Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.”
A Kind Word Is Never Thrown Away
Whenever truth and wise words are shared, there are many people that either choose to ignore them or are not receptive to those words. Wisdom-Trek’s purpose is to apply practical wisdom to everyday life as we intentionally focus on creating a living legacy each day. While wisdom is important, it must be shared and applied with kindness.
You may not see the immediate benefit to being kind to all people, especially those who are not kind to you. A kind word or deed will always germinate and sprout into something good, which will positively impact even those who are difficult.
Part of growing in wisdom is to practice kindness at all times and in every situation. Kindness always produces a reward, even if it is not immediately evident. As we are told in Ephesians 4:31-32, “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”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.
As you enjoy these nuggets of wisdom, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
If you would like to listen to any of our past treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.
Thank you for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and most of all your friend as I serve you through the Wisdom-Trek podcast and journal.
As we take this trek of life together, let us always:
- Live Abundantly (Fully)
- Love Unconditionally
- Listen Intentionally
- Learn Continuously
- Lend to others Generously
- Lead with Integrity
- Leave a Living Legacy Each Day
