The purpose of this blog

"How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!" ~ Proverbs 16:16

"A short saying often contains much wisdom." ~ Sophocles

Indeed, wisdom is more valuable than any earthly possession and much wisdom can be found in few words. With this blog I endeavor to pass on not my wisdom, since it would only take one post and a short one at that, but the wisdom of others as I discover it. I will often add comments to the quote that I post and I invite comments from others so that we might unpack the wisdom in these "short sayings."

I believe that wisdom and truth can be found in many places so the quotes I post will come from many resources. However, I also believe that wisdom and truth must always be evaluated with respect to the ultimate guide for wisdom and truth, God's Word, so I will endeavor to comment in such a fashion.

I do not want to start blogging wars with the things I post because those are rarely productive, but I do want people to comment if they agree or disagree so that we all benefit from different perspectives. I do not publish comments that attempt to promote or advertise for anything. I also do not publish comments that contain profanity.

By His Grace,
