Generational Wisdom

We met Mr. Earl Smith the other day and he shared the wisdom of his father, CE Smith, with us. Here you go.

Link to a father's prayer on Youtube.

Before you complain, think of three blessings you have. Once you get to the third blessing, you should forget your complaint.
If you can't think of three blessings, then you might want to think about your life, and look a little deeper. God blesses those who revere Him and follow Him.

If it's wrong, just don't do it. Don't bother trying to bend the rules or justify what you're doing. 
Just. Don't. Do. It.

If you're praying to God, then you must be willing to wait on him. Pray, then wait for an answer. (Cautionary tale here is Abraham's wife Sara, who took God's plans into her own hands because she couldn't wait.)

Don't take bible verses out of context. Know the whole story. I loved the example CE Smith gave his son.
He opened Little Red Riding Hood and turned to the page where it said "Grandma! What big teeth you have!" Then he closed the book and put it down.
So Grandmas must have big teeth.
See what he means?

Wisdom can be passed down from generation to generation. CE Smith passed wisdom down to Earl Smith, and Earl Smith blessed us with it as well.

And now Earl Smith has blessed you as well, thanks to his father.

To all the fathers out there, Father's Day is coming up. You can leave a legacy like CE did. Think about it.

God bless you all. Thanks for reading.
