Character is like a rock.
If it's good character, it is the foundation upon which an incredible life is built.
If it is bad, it is like a boulder, an obstacle, that trips up and sinks a meaningful life.
Every person's character is developing or deteriorating. Only through intentionally pursuing good character can a person move towards the life they were meant to live.
For life to work well, being good is not enough. You also have to be wise. Wisdom is more than knowledge. Wisdom is accurately applying knowledge and clear judgment to life situations. All of life—relationships, health, finances, career—prospers when I grow in wisdom. How can I empower myself by growing wise?
WISDOM is the principal thing. Therefore get WISDOM...
Wisdom builds my house on a rock. Lack of wisdom builds my house on sand.
Wisdom listens to the right people.
Wisdom is humble.
Wisdom asks the right questions:
In the light of my past experiences, is this the wise thing to do?
In the light of my present situation, is this the wise thing to do?
In light of my future hopes and dreams, is this the wise thing for me to do?
