ECHOES of WISDOM

What exactly is wisdom? At its core, wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment—the kind that is often forged in the fires of trials and errors, adversity, and moments when giving up feels like the only option. Yet, it is in these trenches that we find the strength to persevere, driven by the desire to teach and nurture our future generations with the lessons we learn.





Wisdom involves overcoming the fears that life throws our way. The Bible reminds us in Isaiah 41:10, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." This verse is a powerful affirmation for those times when the path seems too arduous and our burdens too heavy.


We inhabit a world we did not choose, but are blessed to experience. In times of hardship, as well as in moments of joy, turning to faith can provide a foundation that steadies us and guides our steps. Our experiences, both good and bad, are not just for us to keep but to share—echoing the wisdom we’ve gained to our loved ones, our children, and, if we mentor, to our mentees. This sharing is how we teach them to embrace life and not let life overpower them.



Therefore, the next time you face difficulties or navigate through trying times, remember there is a light at the end of that dark tunnel—the invaluable wisdom you gain from each experience. You are here because you are capable of handling it, and each challenge is an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser.
