This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Experience vs Opinion – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1794 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. 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 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 Dave Ramsey, and it is: A person with experience is never at the mercy of a person with an opinion.
Experience vs Opinion
More than at any other time in history, everyone has an opinion about everything and is not ashamed to let everyone know what it is. It has been said that opinions are like armpits, everyone has at least two, and both usually stink. What is much better than opinions is experience. If you have gone through the discipline to gain expertise in any area of life, you are not at the mercy of those who have opinions but no experience. It seems to me that those who have the least amount of experience in any given area seem to have the strongest opinions as if they were the experts. So instead of spouting an opinion, make sure that you have experience and knowledge in those areas. We certainly do not need any more self-proclaimed prophets with far too little experience and many opinions. As Christ-followers we are to be meek and humble with others allowing God’s Word and his precepts to be seen in us. Our focus is to do our best in all areas of life and use our expertise and experience to build God’s kingdom.
Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.
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 ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’
