Wisdom from the Bible

“Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise and they will love you. Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. Thee fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.”

http://Proverbs 9:8-12

It is very important to learn from a mentor. To find a mentor, I should choose a person who has more experience in life or a particular field of study or career. To do this will take us far instead of insisting that we have it all together ourselves.

  1. Wise quotes, thanks for sharing. I like the one by Lorraine on not to be afraid to think. To meditate and always take some time to process. It resonates right now.

  2. I did some research into Gate Keeping recently. In media, gate keeping refers to how some stories are promoted over others. Some editors have great power in our country. They control what we read, watch, and know. Huxley’s quote was the most thought provoking to me. This kind of information control is blatant and subtle, all at the same time. He was one of the best authors to talk about that kind of stuff. If you want a great read of his. Try: The Island . It’s awesome!

    1. Thank you! I love Proverbs! It is great to go through reading 1 chapter each day for a month since many months have 31 days. Enjoy and learn lots!

    1. I like this too! I think that a lot of people need to see this one and think on it a while! There are too many people in our culture today who ignore facts!

  3. I think my favorite quotation is from Mark 9 in which a father desperately wants Jesus to heal his son and cries out: “I believe! Help my unbelief!” I think this is a brave, human admission of doubt as well as faith.

    Thanks for asking!

  4. “God loves us too much to answer our prayers at any other time than the right time.” Lysa TerKeurst, Forgiving What You Can’t Forget
