134. Is it right only to you?

Proverbs 16:2

“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

We shouldn’t do things that we have to convince ourselves are the right thing. If you keep telling yourself this is what I should do, then you will believe yourself. Some go as far as asking people if they should do it until they find someone that says yes. When someone gives you advice you may want to look at them and see how they are doing in their lives that pertains to your question. Like for me I can tell you exactly how to cause and get a divorce. I have been married 3 times. Still married and have been going on 10 years. I have learned that if you want to stay married you must bite your tongue and do somethings that you normally would rather not do every once and awhile.

Don’t be a an askhole. An askhole is someone who ask for advice and does the exact opposite.

133. Distribute what you have learned

Proverbs 15:2

The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

We should do our best every day to listen and learn. God gave us two ears and one mouth. This is so we can listen twice as much as we speak. The is a time to speak. When you know something that could help someone you should tell them especially if they ask. Be honest and help them to overcome what they need help with. When you pass on knowledge you get to pass on some of yourself to others.

The physical human will one day die. It is your mental legacy that you can pass on far greater than to just those who are born to you. If you know something that is useful then distribute that knowledge.

132. Shut up and Listen

Proverbs 14:6

A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

Scorners are usually too busy scorning others to listen. Wisdom is all around us everywhere we go. Wisdom was there in the beginning with the Alpha & Omega when the earth was created. The problem most people have is that the wont open their mind and shut up long enough to listen to it. Wisdom is in your genetics from many mothers that came before you. You are here because they were wise enough to survive.

Everyday go to a quiet place and listen. Just shut up and listen.

131 Keep your mind open

Proverbs 13:1

“A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke”

It seems that some people never learn. They keep making the same mistakes over and over. You will find people like this as you travel your road of life. If there is anything to learn from them it is not what to do.

When people tell you, “hey you are doing it wrong or that will not work”, listen to them. Ask them, “why won’t it work”? they may save you a lot of time, frustration, and hurt. I know it’s hard to take criticism. You must try hard to accept it and learn from it. The most foolish thing you can do is to close your mind.

130. Health & wellbeing

Proverbs 12:7

“The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.”

There is a right way of living and there is a bad way. If you choose the bad way and try to make your way by deception or being plain mean there will always be someone after you.

If you choose the right way you must always be careful, so you are not deceived. If you exepct something you must be prepared to inspect it. If someone is being fair with you they should let you inspect. Key phrases that should alert you are: Do you think I am bad? Why don’t you trust me? And so on.

When you do things the right way there will be very few that are after you. You will sleep better at night. You will have less emotional stress. I believe good quality sleep and low emotional stress are the keys to being healthy and longevity.

If that voice in your head is saying, “is this what you are doing really right”, then it probably isn’t.

129. Strength

Proverbs 11:2

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

You may think that this proverb is telling you to appear weak if you are wise. On the contrary. It shows great strength to be lowly in this sense. You have the strength to accept knowledge and correction. You learn from your mistakes and other’s mistakes. You don’t run your mouth and make trouble for you and your family.

Show some strength and think. Show some strength and learn. Become mighty from carrying all the knowledge you can because knowledge weighs nothing.

128. Live in delight

Proverbs 10:2

“Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.”

Just remember if you get it by being wrong, then you will not get to keep it for very long. If you screw someone to get what you want, then that person is always going to look for a way to get you back and you have to live with that may be forever. Even generations will hand down distaste for individuals or families.

Do what is right. Sleep better at night. Listen to your conscious and live in delight.

127. Be a wise one

Proverbs 9:9

“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.”

I often think about this proverb when I hear an expert making statements or teaching others. You always hear the one fool speaking incorrectly and making a jackass of themselves. If you hear something you don’t agree with don’t automatically say the other person is incorrect. It is better to be silent and then do some research than to blurt out incorrect information and look foolish.

126. Knowledge vs. Silver and Gold

Proverbs 8:10

“Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.”

Instruction and knowledge are the most precious things on earth and beyond. Why is knowledge so much better than silver or gold?

Knowledge weighs nothing.

All you must do is learn it and use it and it’s there in your head. No one can take it from you without ending your life. Knowledge can be passed on also.

Knowledge can protect you.

You can learn how to make a shelter out of very little. You learn to carry an EDC which a small shelter can be carried. You learn defense moves. You learn to carry a weapon and learn how to use it. You can learn how to make a weapon out of almost anything.

Knowledge can give you clean water to drink.

You learn how to carry small filtering devices with you everywhere in your EDC. You learn how to make a filter out of trash materials. You learn how to make a solar still out of scrap materials.

Knowledge can feed you

You learn to carry emergency food rations in your EDC. You learn how to hunt and fish. You learn how to preserve and store food for hard times. You learn how to grow a garden and provide food for yourself and family.
