Congratulations to the high school and college graduates! Over the past few weeks I've been to parties where I was asked to write down words of wisdom. Here are some words from the wisest man in history, King Solomon.
"Hatred stirs up dissension,
but love covers over all wrongs"
"When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom."
"Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but he who hates correction is stupid."
"A mise son heeds his father's instruction,
but a mocker does not listen to rebuke."
"All hard work brings a profit,
but mere talk leads only to poverty."
"Plans fail for lack of counsel,
but with many advisors they succeed."
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed."
"Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent,
and discerning if he holds his tongue."
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous run to it and are saved."
"Listen to advice and accept instruction,
and in the end you will be wise."
I could go on. In fact, read Proverbs and you will find more wisdom.
My advice for you is to seek the Lord, seek knowledge and surround yourself with wise people. Search for good friends wherever it is you are going. Find a good church and become friends with those older than you.
Congratulations graduates and search for the wisdom of God today.
