Wisdom and Courage

Wisdom without courage is riskless, and courage without wisdom is reckless, but wisdom and courage combined with compassion is priceless. (J. R. Briggs, author)

Have you ever thought you had the right solution, but you didn’t have enough nerve to try it out? You probably second-guessed everyone else’s attempt to solve the problem. On the other hand, what about the times you boldly began a project without thinking it through? Disaster, too, eh? We have to learn that the combination of the two, as Briggs suggests is “priceless.”

Be strong and courageous. (Deuteronomy 31:23)

Wisdom is shown to be right by the lives of those who follow it. (Luke 7:35)
