CHRISTIAN LIFE




 

MAN WAS ENDOWED WITH REASON BUT HE SELDOM USES IT

        All men are born alike with a capacity and ability to reason and feel - regardless of their age, sex or position in life.  

        People don't obtain wisdom by fortune; it's implanted by nature. 

        Actually, rich people who are married to their wealth spend more time looking at their gold than looking to heaven.  So intelligence is not something you can buy with wealth, nor obtain by study.  Rather it's conceived when the mind is formed. 

        When listening to someone, listen to the truth of the statement and not the authority of the speaker.  In fact, the more pretentious the discourse, the more evident the reasoning.  Since it isn't colored by the pomp of eloquence and grace, it is sustained by its own truth.
