Wisdom for Daily Living
Have you ever noticed how almost everything you buy now comes with product warnings on it? I am sure that many of these were added just so people wouldn’t sue the manufacturers when they misused their products. Some of these real product warnings are quite humorous:
- On a blowtorch: Not used for drying hair.
- On a push along lawn mower: Not to be used as a hedge trimmer.
- On a toaster: Do not use underwater.
- On a mattress: Do not attempt to swallow.
I’m a man, and like many men, I typically don’t like to read instruction manuals. When I pull a new toy out of its box to put it together, I will try to figure it out on my own. If I get stuck, then only as a last resort, I will consult the instruction manual. How about you? Are you the kind of person who will read the manual first, or will you wait until you’re stuck before opening it up?
Have you ever thought about how great it would be if life came with an instruction manual? Well – it does! It’s called the Bible. If you’re looking for wisdom and knowledge to live life on planet earth, then crack open your Bible, and read through the Book of Proverbs, which offers wisdom for daily living. Here you will find wisdom on family and relationships, handling your finances, keys to successful relationships, and so much more. Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do!
