Wisdom Worth Hearing

“Popular wisdom is often more popular than wise. True wisdom comes from our Creator more than His creation”–Jim Denison.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths”–Proverbs 3:5-6.

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is always sincere”–James 3:17.

It’s like anything in life. Work hard, do things the right way and things usually work out for you–Brad Bohannon.

“What happens to me primarily will be because of decisions or actions in my past. My life as a whole will be determined by how I react to what I can’t control and how I deal with what I can control”–Waylon Bailey.

“Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, ‘He traps the wise in the snare of their cleverness.’ And again, ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise; he knows they are worthless.’ “–1 Corinthians 3:19-21.

“When we make the right choice regardless of circumstances:

  • Satan the tempter is defeated;
  • God is glorified;
  • believers around us are encouraged;
  • unbelievers desire our source of strength;
  • the angels and demons can see God’s wisdom being worked out in humanity;
  • we are changed into the likeness of Christ”–unknown.
