Words of Wisdom #10 | “Give not thy strength... Nor thy ways”

This Words Of Wisdom is extremely personal to me because this particular chapter in the Bible my mother instilled in me. I was her little prince and she wanted me to be a great man. The man I was destin to be. In high school nor college I never completely understood what she was teaching me in this chapter of Proverbs. Now that I’m 35, as I reflect on my life. I've realize she was speaking volumes, through this one chapter in the bible. Also as a father of 3 beautiful princesses & a son. I believe a future queen can follow the same principles my mother taught me.

The Words...

The chapter starts, as a plead from a loving mother to her son and what it takes to be a great king...”The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?” ...As you read it, you can feel the deep love she has for her son. The true love of a great mother is irreplaceable!

 The Wisdom...

She loved him unconditionally, she doesn’t want him to fall short from his destiny...”Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.” As a man, I can say our biggest weakness is the love for women and destructive vices when dealing with our emotions. Which ultimately can destroy our lives.

She goes on by explaining to him how important it is to stay away from these vices...”It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.” ...Think about it! If a man drinks while being in a bad emotional state, this normally leads to trouble. Drinking or any vices during an emotional time can alter our judgement and destroy our life.

The Way I See It...

As most great mothers, she tells us the reasons why? ”Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.” Why do we have these vices? Honestly to escape our world's problems. Not realizing, that our problems will be their tomorrow , if we don’t face it head on! Your going to still be miserable or poor when you wake up the next day.

So in closing, Lemuel’s Mother like all awesome moms gave him wise instructions. Simply said, if you give your ways to anyone (woman or man) or to any vice (drinking, drugs, sex, even work) your not being a wise king or queen of your life? Just Think About It!

Words of Wisdom 2: Better Is Little With Righteousness

“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

"great revenues"

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

"understand"

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

Words Of Wisdom 1#

“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;”

Proverbs 1:2-3 KJV

How I See It...

"No matter what you believe in, their is "Good & Evil". Good people seek to be wise and learn from life's mistakes. So many people stay in a circle because they never gather understanding from life's lessons. In order to have a extraordinary life, you must be willing to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice and judgement to become a better person. Always fighting for the equity of others as you grow your success!" -Shawn Randleman #FoodForThought #ThinkAboutIt #ChangeTheWorld
