By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;  through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. (Proverbs 24 v 3-4).

Like a house, our lives are built brick by brick.

If each brick is made of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, then that house will stand the test of time, however, if that house is built out of any old stuff then you know what’s about to happen. The first time a storm comes to your life, you will collapse and have to start building all over again.

Wisdom comes in many forms; I chose to live by the wisdom of the Bible every day, but I also glean wisdom, knowledge and understanding from people that have successfully built something with their lives. Why would you trust the sayings of someone that’s never built anything?

Here are a few wise sayings that will help you build a successful life…
The greatest danger for most of us is not that we aim too high and miss, it but that we aim too low and reach it – Michelangelo

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty -Sir Winston Churchill.

A different world cannot be built by indifferent people – Peter Marshall

A fool is quick to quarrel…Watch out for quarrellers. Proverbs 20 v 3

You’ve heard it said ‘strike while the iron is hot’, but why wait for the iron to be hot before you strike it…why not strike it until it gets hot -Reinhard Bonnke.

People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be – Pastor Jentezen Franklin.

A happy person is not a person with a certain set of circumstances, but a certain set of attitudes.

The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he were never found out.

The only sure way to avoid criticism, is to do nothing and be nothing.

The truth always outlives a lie.

Happiness relies on happenings, but real joy relies on a real Jesus.

Pastor Mark
