I went to a graduation party yesterday. Despite the fact that we had snow this week and it felt like winter, Whitney's graduation party reminded me that the end is near for many seniors. Graduates from both high school and college are in need of wisdom as they move on to whatever is next in their lives.
Here's a post from last year full of wise words for you graduates. I'll admit I stole all of this from 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.
