Wisdom is something we all need. Most people don't realize that wisdom comes from trying, most often but not always, failing, and yet, never giving up. Some people want wisdom to show others they know everything. I want wisdom so others can avoid the mistakes that I have made; So that they can be better than what I tried to be. Trials and tribulations can give a person wisdom. More importantly, success and elevation.
No matter how you obtain the wisdom you have, ensure that you pass it along to not only those behind you but next to you and in front of you. As you stand firm in your knowledge, understand everything doesn't have to have a charge. Give away some wisdom for free. You weren't charged for everything you got. Even if you were, do something different.
Father, allow me to pass along the wisdom that has been instilled in me. Please help me to guide someone in the right direction. As I stand here planted and rooted in Your word, allow the people to see You in me. Allow them to see a person with wise and true words that want to uplift the kingdom of God. In Jesus' name, Amen.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Celebrating Women/ Facts
Jane Cook Wright
A physician and researcher, Jane Cook Wright
is credited as having been among the cancer researchers to discover chemotherapy. She was the daughter and granddaughter of African American physicians. In 1964, Wright was the only woman among seven physicians who helped to found the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and in 1971, she was the first woman elected president of the New York Cancer Society. Wright was appointed associate dean and head of the Cancer Chemotherapy Department at New York Medical College in 1967, apparently the highest ranked African American physician at a prominent medical college at the time, and certainly the highest ranked African American woman physician. She was appointed by President Lyndon B. Johnson to serve on the National Cancer Advisory Board (aka the National Cancer Advisory Council) from 1966 to 1970 and the President’s Commission on Heart Disease, Cancer, and Stroke from 1964 to 1965.
