Choices I

No matter how many books you read, no matter how many schools you attend, you’re never really wise until you start making wise choices. (Marie T. Freeman, teacher)

We may not be reading as many books as we once did, but some of us are listening to audiobooks. Many others are reading blogs and listening to podcasts, so we’re almost overwhelmed with information of all kinds. But, as Freeman points out, it’s not the quantity of knowledge, but how we choose to use it personally and for the benefit of others that’s important.

Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. . . Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 8:10; 22:1)
