Bits of Wisdom and a Bible Challenge-"Prayer"

Good Evening To All!

I learned quite a bit today in Sunday School and Church, but of course this evening is Bible Challenge, so I will get you started by thinking about this, compliments of my Sunday School Teacher: (of course he had a very informative Sunday school lesson on "7 things Peter said to add to our Faith" as the main course with these little tid-bits to spice it up. I just couldn't resist sharing these bits of wisdom with y'all. Once again, thank you Brother Ford.

Character is the result of two things: How I Spend my Time and (2) What I Put in my Mind.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a Fruit.
Wisdom is knowing Not to put a tomato in a Fruit Salad.

Power of the Tongue - Temper is having a jet propelled tongue with a Model -T brain.
