Welcome to Day 1698 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
A Good Example – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. 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 1698 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 Croft M. Pentz, and it is, “A good example can overcome a lot of bad advice.”
A Good Example
Most people love to advise on many topics as if they were experts on those topics. A person may be an expert, but the experts usually show by example, not by proclamation.
It is like either a single person or a young couple without children giving parenting advice. I am sure you have either experienced or heard of this. Hopefully, you are not the one giving the advice. I would rather receive parenting advice from a person with multiple children, and by example, it is evident that they have raised them to be successful adults.
The same goes for people who advise you on financial matters, business success, dating, marriage, living a healthy lifestyle, or many other topics. You need to seek after those individuals who are showing by example a mastery of that topic and proven success. If you surround yourself with those types of people, you will be well on your way to success.
Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.
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.
