Time for Wisdom
Your own soul is nourished when you are kind; it is destroyed when you are cruel. – King Solomon
The Bible depicts Solomon as a truly wise man. There are too few around today.
Wisdom cannot be given as a gift. It cannot be bought neither can it be taught in school. God gave us a little wisdom, the wisdom, as a baby, to cry when we needed attention and to keep crying until we received the attention we wanted. Other than that he gave us the ability to think and the ability to reason, so that we may find our own wisdom. We obtain wisdom by not talking whilst we should be listening. By reading and watching. We would be wise to learn from others mistakes but too often we wait to learn from our own.
We all have some wisdom but that is usually limited to the areas we are familiar with. We are smart, or wise, in our own work place, as we are in our local surroundings. A homeless person could be referred to as being “street wise”; a stockbroker could be wise to the financial markets or a Doctor could be wise to medical issues.
Wisdom is the ability to rationalize, prioritize and improvise in any given situation, not only those with which we are familiar.
A wise man may not have money. If you were to ask a wise man why, he had no money. He may answer that money does not necessarily make you happy and money can bring its’ own problems. So, it may be wiser to seek happiness without money. I would not trade my wisdom for an academic award and if I was asked to trade it for money, I would be wise to think hard.
Our planet is facing some hard times, global warming, over population, terrorism and perhaps nuclear contamination, from one source or another. It is rapidly becoming time that we put politics aside and instead of opting for “politically smart” leaders, we seek truly wise men to lead us.
It will take truly wise men to restore, our planet, to a place that is compatible as a habitat for humanity for generations to come.
