Interested in my choice of the what wisdom verses and a motto to discern and relate to the year 2020 in my opinion?
If so, I chose the following verses to relate to the pandemic and sad experiences which dominated world news events in 2020.
Is there a case where one can say, “Look, this is new”? It has already existed in the ages before us. There is no remembrance of those who came before, and those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow after. (Ecclesiastes 1:10-11)
What’s My Point?
Pandemics have occurred in the past and will probably occur again in the future.
We in the USA as well as other Nations in the world were not very prepared for the pandemic because of political decisions to allow e 90 percent of our medical supplies to be outsourced to China 8000 miles away.
Or in other words we had no practical remembrance of past pandemics which occurred such as the 1918 Spanish Flu.
- + The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet’s population—and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including some 675,000 Americans. (Google)
In My Opinion
The wisest or most prudent thought we may want to consider about the future might be the Boy Scout Motto, “Be Prepared”
Which begs another thought to consider, Did the Boy Scout Motto originate from another ancient Bible Verse.
Matthew 25:13 – Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
The above wisdom verses are unlawful to be taught to our children in public secular schools which if discerned, will in the future result in religion to wane even more in the USA.
The result will be our children and future generations will probably never have the opportunity to even be afforded to not remember because they will never have been taught the wisdom of past sad experiences’
Or in other words, be even more likely to repeat the same follies or sins of past generations.?
Regards, goodwill blogging and Happy New Year 2021.
