TOPIC: WISDOM IN EXPERIENCE
Memory verse:-"Then their father Israel said to them, "If it must be, then do this: Put some of the best
products of the land in your bags and take them down to the man as a gift—a little balm
and a little honey, some spices and myrrh, some pistachio nuts and almonds.
Take double the amount of silver with you, for you must return the silver that was put
back into the mouths of your sacks. Perhaps it was a mistake. Take your brother also
and go back to the man at once. And may God Almighty grant you mercy before the
man so that he will let your other brother and Benjamin come back with you. As for me,
if I am bereaved, I am bereaved.”
So the men took the gifts and double the amount of silver, and Benjamin also. They
hurried down to Egypt and presented themselves to Joseph. When Joseph saw
Benjamin with them, he said to the steward of his house, "Take these men to my house,
slaughter an animal and prepare dinner; they are to eat with me at noon.”
Experience is the best teacher they say, because Jacob was advanced in age he realized that sending the best product of their land to Joseph will bring them some favor. Most of the time we see the aged as somewhat uncivilized in the matters of modernity as such we fail to listen to their opinions. There is wisdom in experience and no one can doubt that fact. It is not wise to discard the wisdom of the aged.
