"No experience is a waste of time if you learn something from it!" Those sage words came from my granddad, Asa Young. He was my mom's dad, and he was a big man in my eyes, "Abraham Lincoln" big, to a Kentucky youngster. Granddad wasn't rich, he wasn't political, he wasn't powerful, he was just one thing...he was a Christian who "practiced what he preached". He didn't put on a show of his faith in Christ, he just, simply, tried to live it every day. I remember, as a kid visiting in summertime, granddad would read his Bible twice a day, first thing when he got up and last thing when he went to bed. In the evening, he would read from a Gospel, or one of the letters from Paul. But, in the morning, he would always read from Proverbs, because he said, "I think I am going to need to be a little smarter today, than I was yesterday". What a great attitude, to constantly be adding another stone to the foundation of wisdom. Proverbs 16:16 says "how much better is it to get wisdom than gold!" Asa Young didn't have a lot of money in the bank, cars in the driveway, or houses on the beach, but when it came to wisdom...he was one of the richest men I knew. Thank you granddad, because of your example, I read a verse from Proverbs every day and think of you, praying I will be "a little smarter today, than I was yesterday!" Selah!
