A word to the wise should be sufficient

I grew up with a consistent appeal to embrace wisdom from my Dad. “A word to the wise should be sufficient.” The fool may know a lot about which path to take, but the wise person takes that path. “You don’t have to tell me twice” (to do the right thing) is a great thing to be able to say. That wasn’t true of me when I was a kid. I was a fool until Jesus got hold of me. Smart, clever, witty? Yes. But wise? Nope. Since, I made the great exchange, my so-called life for His life, I have found the Spirit of wisdom. Choose wisdom. It is no guarantee of worldly success, but the benefits of wisdom are immense. I beg God to enlighten you with wisdom and I offer you a word to the wise.
Love,
Dad
