This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
People Love a Smiling Face – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1795 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 a Chinese Proverb, and it is, “A person without a smiling face must not open a shop.”
People Love a Smiling Face
Have you ever entered a store or shop, and the workers seemed to have just sucked on a sour lemon? Unfortunately, most of us have had those experiences. It makes you scratch your head and wonder why they are in business at all if they can’t at least be thankful that someone has blessed them by allowing them to serve their needs.
Those that don’t have a good attitude about their work will probably not stay employed or be in business very long. The culture of any company starts with the owners or top managers within that company. If an owner of a business is not friendly and helpful to his employees, he should not expect the employees to be any different to the customers. You can tell almost immediately what the culture of a company or business is when you walk into it.
That is why it is so essential that attitudes and values flow from the very top of the company. If the owner or top management does not reflect integrity and values, they should not be in that position. As imagers of our creator, God, we should always show forth His goodness in every life situation.
In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us.
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.
