Leave Your Mark – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-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!” We are on Day 1649 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. 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 a Chinese Proverb, and it is, “A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.”
Leave Your Mark
We will impact every child that passes through our life. It is impossible not to leave a mark on their life. We have a great responsibility to make sure that the marks we leave are positive and encouraging. Even more important than that is the fact that we will influence them for all eternity.
This is especially true of our children and grandchildren, but it also applies to all children we are around…It may be our nieces or nephews. It may be children we meet at school functions or social events. It may be friends of our children that come over to our house. It may be children that we coach, teach at church, or mentor in some other manner. Regardless of how we are associated with a child, it is our God-given responsibility to point them in the direction of His eternal kingdom. This can be accomplished through attitudes and actions or when we have a direct opportunity to teach them. The marks we leave on each child must be positive and in line with God’s precepts found in His Word. To do less than that is missing the mark and an opportunity.
And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea. What sorrow awaits the world, because it tempts people to sin. Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting.
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.
