Daily Nugget

Thursday, September 29th, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

“The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.”
(William James)
How much wisdom did we learn as our parents overlooked things to teach us valuable life lessons. I don’t mean overlooking sins or things we did wrong, but setting aside daily tasks to spend time with us. Sometimes mom would set aside laundry or dusting to take us to the library or other places. Dad would set aside yard work to take us fishing or swimming.

This did not always happen, as we were taught the importance of responsibility, but enough of those times were taken to show us we were important to them and to build memories. The combination made each of us what we are today. The apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 8:28:
“All things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”
"God, thank You for life lessons that teach us wisdom.

Bro. Bill

God is awesome and worthy of praise!
