Welcome to Day 1726 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
House vs. Home – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1726 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 Benjamin Franklin, and it is, “A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”
House vs. Home
While Ben Franklin did not expand far enough on the differences between a house and a home, this is a good foundation. A house is just a structure where people may dwell, but a home supports, nourishes, and protects those who live within it. This nourishment and protection go beyond the physical needs of the family who lives within the home.
A strong home will provide the necessities of food and fire for the mind as well as the body. No person is complete who is just fed physically. Each person who lives within a home must also have his or her mind filled with nutrients and protection and be an educated, well-rounded individual. So, within your home each day, ensure that each occupant is fed well and kept warm in both body and mind.
The Lord curses the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the upright.
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.
