“Despise not the chastening of the Lord" meaning it's better to be corrected by the Lord in our life then to live unruly without correction. "Whom the Lord loveth he corrected” God loves us and he wants us to fulfill our purpose in life....
“Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right. How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
Proverbs 16:8, 16 KJV
How I See It...
"As humans we all seek more in life...In America we're taught the American Dream...Beautiful House, Car, Bike, Boat and Retirement. In the pursuit of the American Dream we get caugh up on seeking
to build this dream. The problem is too many people lie, cheat and steal their way to this dream. They don't realize there future results is great misfortune.
"Better is Little with righteousness"
meaning it's better to create your lifestyle the right way by helping people achieve their goals as you achieve your's. We're so busy on the pursuit of success, we forget to be wise in all our choices. It's better to have a little house and car you've work hard for, then a mansion you stole for!
"How much better is it to get wisdom then gold"
Wisdom comes from listening and was founded on righteousness! Many times we've seek our dreams, without wisdom. It's the reason why, during the attempt to achieve goals we fail.
Wisdom comes from season advice...Remember that time, someone told you to do something but you did the opposite and the results were bad! Wisdom was talking, but you wasn't listening.
"Get understanding rather then chosen than silver"
People don't listen to each other, because they don't
each other. It's sad but most people don't listen to themselves or seek understanding of life. What's your purpose? What's your destiny? Who are you? What will you become? -Shawn Randleman #FoodForThought #ThinkAboutIt #ChangeTheWorld
