is it wise?

My friend JR was in town yesterday and spoke to our graduating seniors at last night’s Baccalaureate.

He challenged these fine young men and women to seek wisdom.

One practical point that he made was this: Ask yourself, is this wise?

Good advise for us all.

Wisdom: more valuable than rubies.
