Always Learning

Always Learning

We Should Always Be Learning: Pay attention and turn your ear to the sayings of the wise; apply your heart to what I teach...." Proverbs 22:17.

A few days ago I posted the question on my Facebook wall asking what you would tell yourself if you could go back in time. What piece of wisdom would you feel would have changed your life?  I received several unique and interesting replies.

Here's a list of some of the feed back:

---I would say "be careful who you marry
---Really appreciate your parents, because they will be gone one day and that                 emptiness is a horrible feeling
---The choices I make are the choices I live with

Taken my education more seriously
--- That sex outside of marriage is a sin
--- I wish I had known that  Jesus is God
--- If he drinks a lot BEFORE marriage, it will NOT get better after you are married

Think of all the pain, heartache, and sorrow that could be avoided if we would listen to the words of wisdom...if we listen to those who have walked the path before us.

The Bible is filled with wisdom; matter of fact a whole book is dedicated to the teaching of wisdom. The one place that we need to start in our quest for wisdom is coming into a right relationship with God the author of all wisdom, see
Proverbs 1:7 " The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Things to ponder:

--- One must know the God of all wisdom in order to see and operate spiritually
--- It is a biblical principle that we learn from others who have walked before us
--- The sinful choices that we make
WILL bear fruit later in life
--- The family is the  incubation and life school that God has instituted for the imparting of wisdom
---Don't think that your present mate will change just because you marry him/ get what you see in most cases
--- Sex is more than just getting under the outside of marriage has a myriad of negative consequences
