Can wisdom help make us happy?
I read a blog post today tiled: Serendipity for Saturday, which contained this following opening question and statement:
“Are you a happy person? Do you have pleasure, enjoyment, or contentment with your life today? The Hebrew noun ‘usher also means “blessed.” So, when you are happy, you are also blessed.
In a previous post titled: Lousy 2020 Thanksgiving, I brought up a story about the story of ‘‘Solomon’s Seal’ and the phrase “This too shall pass.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb to our contemporary pandemic times to understand if we can be happy if our doctor informs us, we have COVID-19 when we have reached an age that exceeds the average age in life.in spite of serious health conditions.
Or in other words, been advised of the possibility of being blessed in life with wisdom to be happy with the prospect of two scenarios, either we are about to die. or, this too shall pass.
Proverbs 3:13 – “Those who find wisdom are fortunate; they will be happy when they gain understanding.”
What’s My Point?
There is a school of thought that a wealthy person hates dying more than a poor person.
However, a person with understanding of wisdom understands the differences of the types of wealth a person accumulates in life,
My point is to pass on the wisdom of the past for interested readers to discern this Saturday morning.
In My Opinion
In my opinion, whatever wealth you accumulated in life whether it was an abundance of earthly treasure that served to make you happy, or an abundance of love of family of friends, or perhaps both, we all have been fortunate to have been born.
And, “Those who find wisdom are fortunate; they will be happy when they gain understanding.”
