Words to live by

It has been said that Israel‘s King Solomon was known to be the wisest man who ever lived. He was also the richest man in the world during his lifetime and his business skills earned him great renown. In his later years, Solonan wrote the book of Proverbs.

A proverb is a short, saying that expresses a truth or piece of advice. It is based on common sense or experience.The Hebrew word translated "proverb" can also be translated "oracle", "taunt" and "parable". So, it is not surprising that some proverbs are longer than others.

Even today, many successful, wealthy business people read and take the advice that Soloman offers. They realise that hard work, integrity in both their personal and professional lives, and having the creator of the universe as their guide, they can look forward to every success. Right information leads to right and wise decisions. Wise decisions lead to the destiny that God has in mind for us. This is what Proverbs teaches us.

In this page, we can look at aome of Solomon's good advice.  Also words of wisdom from others who inspire me.

There’s power in the touch of another person’s hand.

We rise by lifting others.

Servant leadership is about TOWELS not TITLES.

If you misunderstand someone’s STRUGGLE, you will misread their STRENGTH.

You must find the strength to leave the table if respect is no longer being served.

Goals are “points in time” achievements obtainable by long-term effort.
