I watched my oldest son make a life decision recently and it confirmed how proud I am of my two boys. He wrestled through it with wisdom and landed on, what I believe, was the best answer to his situation.
The title of this post may be misleading, because I don’t know if I taught wisdom to my boys or if they just saw me seek it and so it became a part of their life to pursue it, but either way, I’m glad they gained the practice.
Here are three things my boys have that I wouldn’t trade anything for:
The love of wisdom – My boys love to learn. They continue, into their 20′s, to seek wisdom from me and others.
The learning of wisdom - My boys not only listen to the wisdom of others, they seek it out from their own experience. They seem to realize that wisdom comes best through the experiences of life….good and bad…so they continue to learn from the decisions they make.
The living of wisdom – I have to be honest, my boys are two of the wisest young men I know. They truly take wisdom and apply it to their life, making wiser choices as they grow in wisdom.
I’m addicted to growing in wisdom. I’m so proud my boys seem to have inherited the practice.
Let’s talk wisdom.
Answer these questions:
Do you love, learn, and live wisdom as much as you can?
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest, how wise are you these days? (Be honest with your assessment.)
Who is the wisest living person you know?
