Today I give you another collection of interesting contemporary proverbs, true pearls of human wisdom, coming from minds as diverse as those of statesmen, politicians, businessmen, inventors, writers, ministers, etc.

Once again it is proven that genuine wisdom can never be at odds with the principles of the Bible, since they have a common source ... God. I hope you not only enjoy these jewels but also put them to work.

God bless you.

Whenever I think of wisdom, I think of two characters: Jesus Christ, the Bible records that He is the Wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 17:21

For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." [3]
Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

I would please seek your permission to talk about Solomon in my blog.

Big ups man.

God bless you.
