Wisdom From Uncle George

Some see things as they are and ask why

— I dream things that never were and say why not.

You Choose!

March 26, 2018

IN THIS LIFE . . .

Are we on a quest to DO what is right,

or to always BE right?

These two are rarely synonymous

and one is HOPELESSLY inefficient!

Wealth Versus Wisdom – Our Lord’s Love

April 29, 2013

If I am wealthy am I based upon that powerful in ways that matter?  Perhaps that is difficult to answer as stated since it depends on what one considers to truly matter.  Are my words, my talents, my spiritual gifts, reliant on wealth as the world views it in order to be shared?  A question was posed in the Bible . . .

“What good can come from . . . ”  Fill in the blank as you choose but true wisdom comes from Jesus and His love.  So, how does that change our potential point of view?

Mother Teresa said “Today it is very fashionable to talk about the poor.  Unfortunately it is unfashionable to talk with them.”  

So, poverty, which comes in many forms, does seem to change the way this world perceives us.  I could bury my head in the sand spiritually, behave very badly and very publicly, and author a poorly written book which will make me wealthy financially.  Does this change anything?

Jesus said blessed are the poor.  As this world sees it, Mother Teresa was poor indeed.  How tragic would it be if her words, her prayers, her heart had been silenced because her true wealth and power which came from Him didn’t measure up this side of heaven?

Loving Heart – A Quote For Sunday

August 19, 2012

Okay, this is a quote for all times and all places, but how fitting that I should find it on Sunday morning between church services! 

Break bread with me?

Today’s Smart Cookie

May 30, 2012

Okay, so thinking the sky was gonna fall last night kept Mom and I both awake.  Today, we be tired!  It is with that in mind that I offer you wisdom from a cookie.  Yes, Mom offered to treat me to lunch at the local Chinese place.  Between the two of us we had no energy for much and since it’s just up the street, it seemed like a good choice.  We liked it. 

We both get a laugh out of the fortune cookies . . . I even occasionally eat mine!  Perhaps it is my tired brain, but today’s cookie seemed really quite wise . . .

“If you judge others, you have no time to love them.”
