Not Ashamed – Wisdom Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1475 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of 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 B. H. Streeter, and it is, “If Christ Himself needed to retire from time to time to the mountain-top to pray, lesser men need not be ashamed to acknowledge that necessity.”
My personality is such that I have difficulty taking time to rest, relax, and renew. There always seems to be so much that needs to be completed. The workload from clients seems to be constant and more than I can reasonably achieve in any given week. I have my daily podcast to write, record, edit, and publish. There is also an endless list of repair and upkeep activities in and around The Big House. I feel a sense of self-imposed guilt whenever I take time to rest, knowing that the other tasks are continuing to pile up.
As I grow older, and hopefully wiser, though, I know that I need to force myself to unplug and to retire from time to time for some solitude and prayer. I don’t know if it will ever be easy for me to do so without feeling ashamed, but I do understand how important it is. I have to understand and recognize that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, had constant demands on His time and the weight of all humankind on His shoulders, and yet, He often withdrew into the wilderness to renew Himself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. If Christ himself needed to retire from time to time to the wilderness to pray, I, being so much lesser than He is, should never be ashamed to acknowledge my necessity to do the same.
But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.
