When Wisdom and Truth Collide

When Wisdom and Truth Collide -  Steve Wickham


Read this following quote: "The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' But wisdom is proved right by her actions."
Wisdom is simply this: it's the way things turn out in truth. When someone says, "Mark my words," whatever turns out was the truth in the first instance regardless of the oath the person made.
There is no simpler or more profound thing as this. What goes around comes around. What you sow you usually reap. Wisdom and truth are synonymous and 'collide' in life all the time. They are like cause and effect and are enshrined in the holy law and creation.
What is the lesson and application here? Simply this: you deserve what you get. If you get poorly and you feel like you deserve better simply keep behaving in good and right ways and eventually your 'luck' will turn for the better; it happens eventually. But, if it is really that you're doing poorly because you're not doing the right thing, then you can expect nothing more than a poor result.
You cannot expect to:
- Lose weight and shape up by eating what you like and not exercising.
- Get your dream promotion if you don't demonstrate initiative, poise, and diligence.
- Have terrific relationships if you take all the time and don't learn to give.
- Receive forgiveness if you never practice forgiveness.
An adjusted life is one that accepts this wisdom/truth landscape and doesn't grizzle and moan about it. When we get a result in life we reflect and say, "Yes, I could see how that could happen now." In most life situations we'd dare not predict what will happen as there's any number of permeations regarding outcomes. But surely the mature person can see how an outcome occurred the way it did and that he or she was accountable for the input. We are partly responsible for the outcome.
It is a real folly to hear people absolve themselves of guilt and blame for things they actually partly brought on themselves. They refuse to learn and are spiritually blind to the reasons for continued suffering in this respect. What a hopeless situation. Who would want to live this way? The majority of the human race -- that's who i.e. anyone who does not buy into the truth at every perceivable juncture. And, we've all experienced the truth in negative ways in life, and we always will when we go the wrong way.
There is a much better way. Taking responsibility for our actions and consequences means we'll learn more and be better prepared next time.
