The Quotes Challenge Day 1 – Wisdom is Wealth

Someone welcomed me back to the blogging world and nominated me to this Quotes Challenge. 🙂

Thanks berryduchess for the warm welcome!

For Day 1, I will post a verse quoted from the book of all books:

People nowadays are so focused in fame, power, money, riches, etc. It’s fine actually. Who doesn’t? But unfortunately, they often forget the basic thing needed to get what they want: wisdom.

Do you know what  King Solomon, the wisest king who ever lived, asked from God? Knowledge and Wisdom.

And we should too.

Ever wondered why lottery winners become millionaires for a day and get back being broke after a month? Ever wondered why many people fall into investment scams with the promise of quick money without doing any work? Ever wondered why many superstars spend their money on useless things and grow old homeless and bankrupt?

They wished for fishes without even wanting to know how to fish.

Wisdom is knowing the different seasons in your life and the things you need to accomplish to make the most out of each season.

Just graduated from college and ready for your new job? You think that’s the end of your learning curve? You have to put in the hours improving your craft instead of doing those “YOLO” moments. I must confess, I studied harder and better this past decade compared when I was in college.

Wisdom will tell you that what you are today is the result of what you did yesterday.

Are you pleased with your life right now? If yes, congratulations. You must have done well back on your older self.  Want to be pleased with your life tomorrow? Well, you know what to do.

Ask humbly for more wisdom and He will give you riches beyond your wildest dreams.

I can’t think of anyone to nominate yet, but if you find this challenge interesting, then consider yourself nominated by me 🙂
