What Do You See?


What Do You See?

What scene does this suggest — sunrise or sunset?

Red sky at night or red sky at morning?

We are not sure and have the choice to base how we deal with events either by reacting or responding.

When we react we act upon our feelings quickly, inside us.

When we respond, we pause and consider many options.

If it is “red sky at night,” it is a sailor’s delight — looking forward to something great.

If it is “red sky at morning,” it is sailor take warning — prepare and watch out.  

Only wisdom will translate this.

Loosely defined, the word wisdom refers to applied knowledge.

Sometimes it’s enough simply to know something, but most often it’s essential to know how to use what you know.

As a sage proclaimed centuries ago “As a tree produces fruit, wisdom gives life to those who use it, and everyone who uses it will be happy.” Proverbs 3: 18 ncv
