If you are wise, you are wise for yourself; if you scorn, you alone will bear it and pay the penalty.
Live wisely and wisdom will permeate your life; mock life and life will mock you.
When you make wise decisions you’re the beneficiary of them. Wisdom is the ability to discern a matter, judge it by looking at the different angles, foreseeing the possibilities of a decision, and the application of that decision.
However, you also receive a payback if you’re scornful. The word, scorn, means to act with impudence, foolishly, or as a mocker. Let me explain. There are a lot of men who make decisions without thinking. They’re flippant about life.
The good news and the bad news is that either way, the person receives the payback from either a life of wisdom or a life of foolishness.
Don’t mock yourself into ruin.
