Is your plan in life smart or wise? Does it provide a help guide when you encounter the burdens you may face on your path in life?
In a previous post titled, King Solomon, Only Wise or Foolish, I explained why I discern someone’s actions only as either wise of foolish.
In this post, I selected excerpts from two posts of the differences between smart and wise planning guides to help understand the burdens we may face on our paths in life as described in this quote.
“it is only the first 100 years in life that is the hardest.” William Mitzner
I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind! (Ecclesiastes 1:13)
And his observation upon the whole is,
this sore travail hath God given to the sons of men, to be exercised therewith: he found by experience it was a heavy task, which God had put upon the children of men, to get wisdom and knowledge in the way it was to be gotten; which was very burdensome and wearisome to the flesh; (Excerpt Gils Commentary)
Planning Guides Excerpts
“If you know but do not do, you’re considered someone smart. If you learn and apply that knowledge, even though you may make mistakes, you’re working toward becoming wise. And by doing so, you will notice a difference in the way you handle people, overcome challenges, resolve issues, manage money, and increase your value in your occupation.
“Spiritual wisdom is given only by the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament, Solomon exemplified this wisdom.”
“I like how someone described wisdom “Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.”
In My Opinion
Practical wisdom – will help guide our body on a path in life on earth.
Spiritual wisdom – will help guide our souls on a path both in our life on earth, and on a path to heaven..
If interested, read the full articles of the Excerpts in the Sources below. King Solomon personified wisdom as the Goddess of Wisdom in ancient times. A later personification is Sophia (Greek Word Study.) Perhaps, it may help guide you to better understand how to find love and wisdom, peace, prosperity, and happiness for both your body and souls .
For wisdom will enter your heart, And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;(Proverb 2:10)
Keep in mind though, that regardless of any plans made by man, your Creator has a plan and purpose. Wisdom will lead you to have faith and trust in your Creator.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (Proverb 3:5-6 )
Do you have a plan to help guide your choices you will face both the blessings and burdens in life?
Will your plan help guide you to find love, wisdom, peace, prosperity, and happiness in both good and bad times in life, and hopefully your souls in heaven?
Regards and good will blogging.
