Revelations of a Sun morn

Intention without action is dead.

If I say that the love of Christ is in me, then let me not be quick to judge/snap/be bitter, but always be ready to shed love, peace, hope & joy to others.

We know that wisdom brings success. But what about 'softening harshness'?

Ecclesiastes 8:1
"How wonderful to be wise, to analyse and interpret things. Wisdom lights up a person's face, softening its harshness."

Wisdom does not only bring success from the ability to analyse and interpret things - it lights up and softens the harshness of one's countenance to one of peace and nobility.

Ecclesiastes 10:4
"If your boss is angry at you, don't quit! A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes."

Gentle submission to authority is an honorable virtue. Humility before authority brings forgiveness and favor of men.
