Ahhh Wisdom... Timeless Wisdom


What beautiful words today!

Wisdom like this has guided people for thousands of years. First the Jews, then all Christians (in addition to Jews) and eventually - all of Western Civilization.

Wisdom...

Timeless wisdom...

23 The desires of good people lead straight to the best,
but wicked ambition ends in angry frustration.
24 The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.
25 The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.
26 Curses on those who drive a hard bargain!
Blessings on all who play fair and square!
27 The one who seeks good finds delight;
the student of evil becomes evil.
28 A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump;
a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.
29 Exploit or abuse your family, and end up with a fistful of air;
common sense tells you it's a stupid way to live.
30 A good life is a fruit-bearing tree;
a violent life destroys souls.

Drink it in.

Let it settle deep within.

Wisdom...

Timeless wisdom...

That is timeless wisdom, to be sure. And not only that but a beautiful painting as well. Beauty and wisdom, quite a pairing. Thanks for the inspirational blog.
