Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14 New International Version
It is very common in Asia for mothers to beat (yes physically beat look up tiger mothers) their children and constantly nag them to get a good education (so the children can get a good job, so the children can support their mamma so she can live luxuriously, sounds kind of greedy to me) from the time they are very young (it is common for mothers and grandmothers to want English teachers to teach their children university English when they are young as four years old).
It is constantly drilled into them to get the best education so they can get the highest paid job.
When the children graduate most of them cannot find work.
Either that or they do find work and work like slaves.
The children are then very angry and bitter. Many think “Is this what I spent twenty years of my life for? I was robbed of a nice childhood. I had no time to play or make friends.”
What happens if you can’t get a job or get laid off because of down sizing?
Do you know the difference between knowledge and wisdom?
Knowledge is knowing something; wisdom is putting knowledge to work.
For example : You may go to school to learn how to cook, but if you do not put that knowledge into practice and instead of cooking healthy delicious meals you cook macaroni and beans what good is your knowledge?
Honey not only tastes good it is also very healthy for you and makes you strong. When you have the best wisdom you gain the promise of the best future. Let wisdom be like honey to your mind. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Where may you find this knowledge?
In your Bible of course.
There you will find how to have a relationship with God, how to have proper relationships, how to handle money and of course, how to know your calling in Gods family (once we are saved. God gives each of us a specific duty to do in His family). This of course leads to the ultimate future: a future in Heaven with our beloved Jesus.
Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our Teacher) for the blessing of giving me wisdom found in Your sacred word, the Bible. I give joyous thanks in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
