Description

Through the use of positive/encouraging stories, parables, allegories, and analogies we will explore the trails of everyday life in a practical and meaningful manner as we scale towards our summit.

Each day we will explore and consume small "nuggets of wisdom" as we cover a different subject or terrain. This 5 day a week, 5 minutes of wisdom podcast and journal will help us to live life fully while creating a living legacy. Along the way, we will be seeking wisdom and discipline and striving to understand the insights of the wise. By doing so we will learn to live a disciplined and successful life and to do what is right, just, and fair. I will count it a privilege if you will allow me be your guide as we trek together.

Welcome to Day 1764 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomA Better Legacy – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1764 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Thomas Scott, and it is: A man cannot leave a better legacy to the world than a well-educated family. A Better LegacyWe often think we must leave a great legacy when we die to provide our family, friends, or organizations with something of sizable monetary value. While this can be commendable, money is certainly not a legacy of most significant value. Instead, providing your family with a well-rounded education is of much greater importance. This education should include Biblical wisdom and knowledge and knowledge of how to make a good and ethical living, the arts, culture, and people. A well-educated family will provide each member with all the tools they need to create their living legacy. Education is essential, and one of the most critical aspects of an excellent education is knowing how to learn on your own. To provide a skill set that creates additional skill sets. That is indeed the best legacy you can leave to others.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Peter+1%3A2-9andversion=NLT (2 Peter 1:2-9)May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1763 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1763 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomBe Comfortable – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1763 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Mark Twain, and it is: A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval. Be ComfortableThere seems to be an epidemic of people who are just not comfortable with who they are. They are dissatisfied with life, disillusioned with their future, and always seeking peace outside of themselves. But, unfortunately, they have not discovered that peace is always internal and can only be achieved when our peace rests in our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. When we have God’s Spirit dwelling within us, we can finally be satisfied and comfortable with ourselves and those we interact. The peace of God comes from knowing that He has control of our lives and is directing His creation for His purpose. Joy and peace go hand in hand. You are never joyful unless you are first at peace with yourself. Likewise, you are never at peace with yourself unless you are at peace with God. It’s your choice; choose wisely.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%2014%3A26%2D28andversion=NLT (John 14:26-28)But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1761 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1762 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomUnlimited Enthusiasm – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1762 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Charles Schwab, and it is: A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm. Unlimited Enthusiasm Enthusiasm may not be required for success on every occasion. Still, if a person is going to be successful in their endeavors on a consistent and continual basis, they must be enthusiastic about what they are doing. It boils down to the fact that if a person has unlimited enthusiasm, they will not quit until success has been achieved, even if it requires going through multiple failures. The passion and drive needed to persist through the trials and obstacles of life are bolstered by unlimited enthusiasm. It is that extra ingredient needed to keep on going when others would have given up and quit. Boundless enthusiasm is created when we choose to be enthusiastic. As with most aspects of life, when deciding to take action, continue, and fight against the odds, our desires are strong enough to align with our choices. If we follow God’s leading in our lives, we should move forward with enthusiasm and know that He who began a good work in us will continue to guide us.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians%201%3A6andversion=NLT (Philippians 1:6)And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1761 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1761 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomGod's Glory – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1761 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from C. S. Lewis, and it is: A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.God’s GloryIs it any wonder why C. S. Lewis is one of the favorite and most respected authors of all time? His allegorical books ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ have been read for many generations and were made into popular movies. His quote for today is not only allegorical; it is a profound truth. There is nothing that humans can do or say that diminishes God’s glory one iota. Just because a person refuses to acknowledge and worship God does not change God, it only shows the ignorance of that person. God’s glory cannot be diminished by humans. We are His creation, and imagers, so the only thing that a person should and can do is show forth God’s glorious image. A crazy person may say there is no sun, but that does not its brilliance and majesty or change the fact that the sun is evident to all. Similarly, just because a person says there is no God, or does not acknowledge that God is real does not minimize He greatness. God’s glory is evident to all.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+14%3A11-12andversion=NLT (Romans 14:11-12)For the Scriptures say,“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,‘every knee will bend to me,and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.’”Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1760 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1760 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomNot A Failure – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1760 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from John Burroughs, and it is: A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame others for his failures.Not A FailureFailure is not a problem unless you refuse to take responsibility and blame other people or circumstances for your failure. Yes, we will fail, none of us is perfect, and we cannot perform perfectly every time. The key is to prepare yourself to minimize the impact of failures and quickly recover so you can begin again, but this time with the additional wisdom learned through that failure. Unfortunately, it is usually our pride that causes us to view failures as something negative. Although none of us like to fail, it will not be nearly as devastating if you realize that failure is a part of life in any worthwhile endeavor. When you know that failure is an integral part of success, you won’t be devastated when it happens, but understand that it is part of the lessons you learn as a pupil of the schoolmaster called life. So move ahead boldly and anticipate failures and pitfalls. Be ready to pivot and begin again. Above all else, God will continue to direct and guide you, even though those difficult paths of life.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20119%3A105andversion=NLT (Psalm 119:105)Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians%201%3A6andversion=NLT (Philippians 1:6)And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1759 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Albert Schweitzer, and it is: A man can do only what he can do. But if he does that each day he can sleep at night and do it again the next day.Do What You CanIn today’s fast-paced, driven society, we are pressured to do more each day. However, if we don’t pause and reflect once in a while, we can become frustrated and feel defeated. We need to utilize our God-given talents and abilities to do our best, but not more than capable. We can do what we can do. The key is to continue consistently and persistently to repeat what we can do each day. Day after day, for that season of life. If we do our part, we can lay our heads on the pillow at the end of each day, knowing that we have done our best for that day. Then, when we rise the following day, we can do it again that day. As we repeat this process, we will find out what we have done is enough.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Timothy%202%3A15andversion=NLT (2 Timothy 2:15)Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval.

So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Vince Lombardi, and it is: A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive, and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.Believe In YourselfVince Lombardi, one of the greatest coaches, knew what it took to be a champion. Nearly all our limitations are self-imposed. God created us as masterpieces to fulfill our destinies as His imagers. To image God is to project through us His greatness to a world that so desperately needs Him. If we view ourselves as God views us will have the courage, determination, dedication, competitive drive, and the willingness to sacrifice the little temporal things of life and pay the price for that which is eternal. So why do we settle for being less than what designed us to be? We settle when we choose to have what we desire now, for what we want most. Don’t allow short-term shiny objects to distract you from your potential in life. You can reach your potential if you are willing to pay the price now for huge returns at a future date. Don’t give in, don’t give up, keep moving forward.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hosea%2010%3A12andversion=NLT (Hosea 10:12)I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love.

Welcome to Day 1757 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomLife Is Like A Mirror – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1757 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Ken Keyes, and it is, A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.Life Is Like A MirrorWhat is your outlook of the world and those with whom you are associated? It is a fact that how we view life is mainly reflective of our attitude and outlook. So, for example, if we see the world as getting increasingly worse and going to hell in a handbasket, our perspective of life will be filtered through those lenses. In that case, our world will seem pretty dismal. But, on the other hand, if our worldview considers the world, even with its problems, as becoming increasingly better through communication and technology, then our perspective of the future will be much brighter. Therefore, one thing we can rely on, regardless of our worldview, is specific facts that point to the truth. You may want to consider some facts, especially if you struggle and see the world as hostile. First, in all of recorded human history, there are far fewer wars and conflicts. Second, our life spans are increasing exponentially. Third, medical breakthroughs allow us to live longer and with a much better quality of life. Fourth, technology is allowing living and working conditions to be much better and more manageable. Finally, the ability to communicate with family and friends is increasingly more accessible and less expensive. These examples are just scratching the surface of what we will see in the next 20-50 years, and the breakthroughs are increasing exponentially also. So if your worldview is one of hostility, you need to expand your horizons to see all the blessings we have in our lives today, especially compared to ages past. What is in our hearts and minds will overflow into our lives. Everyone we meet is a mirror of our hearts and mind.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hosea+10%3A12andversion=NLT (Hosea 10:12)I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness,and you will harvest a crop of love.Plow up the hard ground of your hearts,for now is the time to seek the Lord,that he may comeand shower righteousness upon you.’As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1756 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

We are on Day 1756 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Howard Schultz, and it is, A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future.Not Luck At AllFor the most part, life is not made up of good luck or bad luck. Yes, there are rare occasions when a person is in the right place at the right time, but it happens much less than you would imagine. In most situations, the reason the timing and opportunity coincide is that a person has prepared themselves, sometimes for years, to be ready when an opportunity does show itself. There is a relatively well-known saying that Most people miss opportunity because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. It is about preparing for opportunity, and when it arrives, it is about being willing to take the risk, seize the day, and accept responsibility for your future. Instead of luck, it is being prepared for setbacks and obstacles that will come your way and pivoting to take advantage of them. You might say, luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunityhttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+9%3A8-11andversion=NLT (2 Corinthians 9:8-11) And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9 As the Scriptures say,“They share freely and give generously to the poor.Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous.

Welcome to Day 1755 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomInspired To Excel – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1755 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Zig Ziglar, and it is, A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.Inspired To ExcelDo you have someone who has inspired you to move outside of your comfort zone and excel to a level you never thought you could achieve? Most people who succeed in any area of life would probably indicate that this is the case. I know in my life, my parents played a role in this process, along with hours and hours of listening to tapes of individuals who were successful and provided me with the encouragement to pursue goals beyond what I would have otherwise. You can be inspired to excel if you are willing to learn from the sages who have already proven that they are successful. Then, you will need to turn that inspiration into action. When you take, you will begin to see achievements. As you see achievements, you will need to gain perseverance when the trials of life become difficult, and they will. That perseverance will generate long-term endurance and strength to ignore the naysayers so that you can continue on in the face of obstacles, setbacks, and even failure. So take the encouragement from others and allow it to inspire you to excel beyond anything you could have dreamed.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+12%3A1-4andversion=NLT (Hebrews 12:1-4)Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1754 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1754 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomHaving A Backbone – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1754 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Robert Kiyosaki, and it is A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That’s where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It’s having backbone.Having A BackboneIt is ok to be gentle and meek, which is not the same as being weak. It is certainly ok to always tell the truth and when you need to say no to requests or demands. However, when you stand on your principles, focus, and priorities, you may have to say no to what is good so that you can say yes to what is best. Remember that when you choose no, it automatically opens up the possibility of saying yes to something even more incredible. When you have to say no to something that may compromise your ethics and integrity, you are not mean to the other person; you are standing for what you deem the truth and what is best for you. You must make choices based on God’s will for you and what is best for yourself and your family. That is not shunning others or being a bully; you have a backbone and stand up for your principles. Stand strong.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+1%3A22-25andversion=NLT (James 1:22-25)But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1753 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1753 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomMore Persistence And Effort – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1753 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Elbert Hubbard, and it is A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.More Persistence And EffortThere is a fine silk thread between success and failure. Just a little more persistence and effort may exponentially change an outcome and turn what seems to be a hopeless failure into glorious victory. Let me give you an example, although not a perfect analogy of the earnings paid out in the Kentucky Derby for 2021. The first-place winner takes home $1.86 million, the second place is $600,000, the third place is $300,000, and the fourth-place earnings are $150,000. There was only a fraction of a second between all four top-place winners. Just that little more persistence and effort between the first and fourth place winners was a difference of over $1.7 million. So it is with many of our pursuits in life. If we are willing to work just a little harder, be a little more persistent, pour in a little more effort, and it will have an exponential difference in the results of whatever we are pursuing. Don’t quit, don’t give up, keep on keeping on. We are imagers of Christ who have been given incredible talents, abilities, and skills. We need to use them for God’s glory and show others the path to God’s kingdom.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Peter+1%3A3-11andversion=NLT (2 Peter 1:3-11) By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to...
Welcome to Day 1752 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomKnowledge That Acts – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1752 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Kahlil Gibran, and it is: A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.Knowledge That ActsIn our current message series at church, we are studying the letter from James, which is closely related to this quote. Our theme for the series is ”Faith is Work in Action.” If we have knowledge that we should act on and do not take action, our knowledge is worthless. We are not to be idle in our lives but use the wisdom and knowledge provided by God to take action towards building His kingdom. God does not expect us just to accumulate knowledge but to assist those who are in need when we can help. However, as Christ-followers and citizens of God’s kingdom, we have responsibilities to use the little knowledge we have and multiply it through our actions. That is true value. Knowledge with no action is idleness, and there is no value in idleness. In the letter of James, he focuses on this concept, except he uses the word faith instead of knowledge. In this situation, they are indeed similar.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+2%3A14-20andversion=NLT (James 2:14-20)What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1750 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Unknown, and it is: A little girl taking an evening walk with her father looked up at the stars and exclaimed, ‘Oh, Daddy, if the wrong side of heaven is so beautiful, what must the right side be!’The Right Side Of HeavenDo you ever take time to go outside on a starry night where there is no local light source and lay on your back to look at the beauty of the universe? If not, you should do so as soon as possible. It is breathtaking and beyond comprehension. Our minds cannot comprehend the beauty of God’s creation. It is so vast that astronomers have no idea of how large the universe is. Yet in James 1:18, we are told, He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. Think about this; we are God’s prized possession out of all that He created. That means as God’s created images, his love for us is even greater than the vast universe. If that doesn’t cause us to pause and glorify God, nothing will. We have just seen a glimpse of the magnitude of His creation. If what we can see now is so marvelous, just think what heaven will be like. It will be a wonder to behold.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+2%3A9andversion=NLT (1 Corinthians 2:9)That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians%202%3A10andversion=NLT (Ephesians 2:10)For we are God’s masterpiece.

Welcome to Day 1750 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomHow Much Faith Is Enough – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1750 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Thomas Watson, and it is: A little faith is faith as a spark of fire is fire.How Much Faith Is Enough?Faith is an exciting concept, and it depends on how comfortable and familiar we are with what we are putting our faith in. For most of us, when we sit down in a chair, we have faith that it will be strong enough to support us. It is because we have experience with and trust in most chairs. The same could be said for so many items we use every day, from beds to vehicles. We also have faith that the food we purchase won’t make us sick or kill us. But, how much faith is enough to handle life daily? I would say, not very much faith is required to live a normal lifestyle without fear. Can we say the same about our faith in God? How much faith is necessary to trust that God will provide for our daily needs, keep us from harm, and guide our future? If we can have faith that a chair will support us, it should not even cross our minds that the creator of the universe, which includes you and me, can direct our lives for His purpose for us. We are as God’s imagers, and as such, we are to project God into the lives of others. If we live fearful lives, what does that indicate of our trust and faith in God? Jesus Christ taught us that we just need a very small amount of faith as citizens of God’s kingdom to move mountains and impact our world.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+17%3A20-21andversion=NLT (Matthew 17:20-21) “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1749 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Thomas Leonard, and it is: A lifestyle is what you pay for; a life is what pays you.A Lifestyle vs A LifeIf you work hard and are prudent with what you earn, you can create the lifestyle you wish to live. However, it does take focus, endurance, and wisdom to take advantage of the opportunities you cross on your trek of life. Especially in most free countries, you can create just about any type of lifestyle desired. However, you must ask yourself and your family, are you willing to pay the price necessary to reach your desired lifestyle. I am certainly not referring only to a monetary cost. Every time to choose to say yes to one option, you are automatically saying no to other possibilities. Just make sure your choices are a good investment for you, and the impact on your life with family and friends is worth the cost. Living a rich and satisfying life is much more than obtaining material resources, it includes a rewarding life of relationships that no amount of money can buy. The satisfaction, peace, and relationships you can foster in your life are the payments you will receive from a well-lived life. One aspect of a well-lived life is sharing our resources with others to help improve their lifestyles.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John%203%3A16%2D18andversion=NLT (1 John 3:16-18)We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from John Glenn, and it is: A life spent centering only on itself will, in the end, occupy a very, very small universe.A Very Small UniverseWhen we are wrapped up in ourselves and focused only on our needs and desires, our world or our universe will be a tiny one. However, when we expand our horizons, participate in activities that allow us to grow, and push outside our comfort zone, we will become more than we currently are today. Through this growth process, when we assist others and focus on their needs, it will allow us to expand exponentially. The more we develop ourselves and help others grow, the more we will learn and the larger our universe will become. We were not created to be an island unto ourselves but in loving relationships with God and fellow imagers of God. It is then we can fulfill our God-given destiny utilizing all our God-given talents and abilities. So, grow yourself, and help others to grow also.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Peter+1%3A3-11andversion=NLT (2 Peter 1:3-10) By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Rita Mae Brown, and it is: A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.A Life Of ActionWhen faced with opportunities, challenges, or difficulties in life, are you proactive or reactive? The answer to this question will largely determine how you live. This choice applies to all areas of your life, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. If you are continually reactive, you become a slave in those areas of life because the dictates and choices of others continuously drive you. Others are calling the shots and making decisions for you.On the other hand, if you are a proactive person, before you are forced into making a decision based on someone else's agenda, you take the bull by the horns and take the action that is needed to seize the opportunities, face the challenges, and handle the difficulties of life. Being free allows you to live a life with choices, resulting in a rich and satisfying life. To be reactive stems from being fearful, which in most situations is a false fear. When you are proactive, you will make more mistakes in life, but overall you will be much farther ahead long term while maintaining the ability to make choices and be free! Don’t live a life of slavery to your fears. Instead, live a life of freedom knowing that God will give you the wisdom when faced with those exciting and challenging decisions of life, which we all face.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Timothy%201%3A7andversion=NLT (2 Timothy 1:7)For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Welcome to Day 1746 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomA Life Of Obedience – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1746 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16andversion=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from Vonette Z. Bright, and it is: A life of obedience is not a life of following a list of do's and don'ts, but it is allowing God to be original in our lives.A Life Of ObedienceTo some, they picture obedience as the same as following a strict list of rules and regulations—a list of dos and don’ts. That is not obedience but legalism. On the contrary, obedience is when we willingly and joyfully follow the precepts found in God’s Word. We follow them, not because we are forced to, but because we desire to please our creator. God only wants what is best for us, and only God ultimately knows what is best. Therefore, our desire to please God must be stronger than our desire to please ourselves. When we follow His precepts because of our love for Him, we can experience the rich and satisfying life that Jesus desires for us. Therefore, we must guard that obedience does not turn to pride but is driven out of our love for God and others.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians%202%3A16andversion=NLT (Galatians 2:16)Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.” As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1745 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.

Welcome to Day 1745 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to WisdomMaking Mistakes In Life – Daily WisdomWelcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1745 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge.

If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:Today’s quote is from George Bernard Shaw, and it is: A life making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing at all.Making Mistakes In LifeFew people purposely make mistakes, nor do we enjoy it when we do, but mistakes are inevitable because none of us are perfect, and most are far from it. The alternative to not making mistakes is to do nothing, but that would be the biggest mistake you could make in life. It is more honorable to try and make mistakes than not to try. Mistakes are the stepping stones to learning. Mistakes are part of the dues a person pays to live a rich and satisfying life. Making mistakes is an inherent part of life that we cannot escape from; however, we must be big enough to admit those mistakes, smart enough to benefit from them, strong enough to correct them, and wise enough not to repeat them. We should learn from the mistakes that other people make also. We can never live long enough to make all of the mistakes ourselves. The biggest mistake you can make in your life is the constant fear of making mistakes.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+8%3A35-39andversion=NLT (Romans 8:35-39)Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’ If you would like to listen to any of our past 1744 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com.
