Measure of a Man

God's beauty encompasses frailty with a purpose.

When walking this morning I enjoyed a magnificent sunrise.  The geese were calling to those in the water nearby, and all of nature seemed to be at peace with itself.  As I walked, my thoughts went to that of a life of a man.  How does one measure one's life, whether it was fulfilling or not? The thought came to me that a man cannot measured by how much knowledge he has accrued, it must be gauged by the knowledge he has applied to his life.  I have met many men who were very knowledgeable, but possessed little wisdom. God's word speaks very highly of those seeking wisdom.   James 1:5&6 / James 3:17
To the world it is foolishness, but to the godly, from weakness comes strength.
