sage of this world
Thought of the day:
Communication is the mechanism that carries in itself all the energy necessary to ennoble man and elevate him to the status of a sage of this world or on the contrary, when it is channeled and misused it can send him to the pillar of infamy.

Wherever you are, you choose to be today a man who acquires a mentality superior to the common people. To be a true Christian, moving away from the entourage that pushes you to the mist of death.
Dare to believe that you can be a light in the dark without forgetting that only through the Lord Jesus Christ and the power of the Spirit or the Holy Spirit will you win the hard fight against sin and dirty talk!
