Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do:
It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.
Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom.
Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom.
Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom.
It’s the furthest thing from wisdom—
It’s animal cunning,
It’s devilish conniving.
Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats. So live well, live wise, and live humbly – It’s the God kind of Wisdom.
