Greetings everyone, as you live and learn please understand, that wisdom is not popular. If it was, everyone would be embracing it. The reason wisdom is not popular is because it puts you in a position where you have to change and be better. Many are not ready to change or to be better, because all be it temporary, so many of the things that are unwise feel good to do. Many of us get into things that are not good for us for different reasons life can be hard, as a human myself I have empathy. However, the purpose of the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” is to teach you how not to be a victim of anything or anyone, even yourself…
The title “Walk with the wise and become wise, associate with fools and get in trouble” is a quote from the bible proverbs 13:20. Do not underestimate the impact of associations on your life.
Some may say “I have my own mind, no one can make me do anything”. This is true no one can “make” you do anything. However, a fool can “make” anything look cool or appropriate to do. For example, take smoking
the results of smoking on health, are clear and without debate. If anyone is unsure about the effects of inhaling any kind of smoke, tobacco or otherwise, they would only have to ask themselves if their lungs were made for smoke, or what are the beneficial effects of smoke inside of the lungs. However, so many light up and inhale all kinds of smoke daily. One may say the songs didn’t “make” me do it or the movies didn’t “make” me do it. This is true however, many movies and songs are definitely not educating you on why you shouldn’t.
Or how about infidelity i.e. cheating on your mate? So many movies and songs make that look cool or appropriate to do. However, no parent would endorse their son or daughter being cheated on. No son or daughter would endorse their mother or father being cheated on.
In closing let me say that here are so many other activities that I plug into this article. However, I encourage you to examine your own life and associations and to determine where there is a lack of wisdom.
Just remember this just because you SMILE when you do it does not make it wise…
Once you see the effects of a lack of wisdom in your life. Once you see the chaos that a lack of wisdom brings to your life, certain actions should cease to be FUN to you. As a result it should become easier for you to get focused on separating yourself from those who are foolish.
Please share this with your children nieces and nephews if you have them. Until next time Godspeed.
