Following the voice of wisdom and good sense




   We live in an age that has lost its wisdom and good sense.  
   Wisdom is a very important thing to obtain in this life.  It is 
   very important to be able to distinguish what is wise and 
   prudent from that which is unwise and foolish; it is very 
   important to have a natural sense and judgment which tells us 
   which way to go, that cautions us and guides us.  But even if 
   God blesses a man with all wisdom that is not everything.  The 
   next thing is to follow that wisdom.  There are many forces 
   that can induce us to go against that voice of wisdom and 
   sense.  Or that can cloud it, obscure it.  Like what kind of 
   forces?  Anger, Temptation, Lust, Fear, Desperation, Envy, 
   Malice, Hate, Jealousy, Romantic love or infatuation, 
   Enchantment, Resentment, etc..  All the strong emotions and 
   feelings.  For example, a seductive temptress might induce a 
   married man to do something he knew was foolish and wrong --- 
   and that one act might end up haunting him the rest of his 
   life, perhaps destroying his marriage.  Another example that 
   happens very frequently:  A lonely single person becomes 
   emotionally involved with someone, ignores the warnings of 
   sense and judgment, and ends up marrying a person he certainly 
   ought not to have married.  Result?  If he was unhappy when he 
   was single he is many times as unhappy married.  In the 
   greatest decision of life he made a complete and total blunder.
