Gary Godard Chief Technical Officer
A tourist was visiting in a large city and lost all sense of direction.
He stopped at a newsstand to get directions.
He asked the owner of the newsstand,
"Which direction is NORTH?"
The man replied, "Look buddy. We got UPtown, DOWNtown,
and CROSStown. We ain't got no North!"
8 A man will be commended according to his wisdom,
But he who is of a perverse heart will be despised.
9 Better is the one who is slighted but has a servant,
Than he who honors himself but lacks bread.
10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal,
But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
11 He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread,
But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Good directions are hard to find nowadays!
Most folk just grow up in relation to their own locale, and
aren't concerned with wisdom with which they might help others.
Life is too precious to waste without learning.
And our lives do affect other people's lives.
It is important, particularly, that Christians learn,
especially about God's WORD!
It is our Lord's command that we give "instruction" to
others about finding eternal life in Christ.
TRUE wisdom comes only from surrender to Christ
and following His instructions!
That wisdom, once received, is reflected in our character and
the manner in which we communicate with others.
True righteousness is reflected in the mannerisms of life.
The person who shows no integrity in his life, will be
"despised" by others.
A "good man" will care for his possessions (verse 10).
And a "good man" will WORK with what he has (verse 11).
Christians have RECEIVED eternal life.
Let us work with that, and learn!
Then we might give good directions and instruction to others!
