What Are You Known For? – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1776 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 says, “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 Unknown, and it is, “A man is not only known by the company he keeps, but by the enemies he makes.”
What Are You Known For?
We can be known for a lot of different things in our lives. Such as what we do as an occupation or what church or clubs we associate with. One of the primary ways we are known is by the people we associate with or don’t associate with. Those that we keep company with and invest a lot of time with will largely determine how we act and the activities we are involved in. Those people will either positively or negatively impact our lives. Others will judge us, either fairly or unfairly, by the company that we keep.
They will also judge us by those who are considered our enemies. Especially in today’s politically charged environment, we have lost a lot of civilities where we no longer feel we can agree to disagree and remain civil with others. So we need to be careful of both who we associate with and those we consider to be enemies. My mom used to tell us that if you sleep with dogs, don’t be surprised when you wake up with fleas. This saying is so true; you will be known for the company you keep and the company you don’t keep. Choose wisely.
Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.”
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.
