Wisdom, Not Hammers

“A home,” wrote Solomon the Wise, “is built with wisdom.”

And not with a hammer.

Because wisdom is the glue of beauty. Wisdom, meaning the ability to step back and see all of the picture, the past and, most important, the future to which all this leads. To see the truth inside each thing.

Without wisdom, there are only fragments. With wisdom, there is a whole. And there is peace between all the parts of that whole.

I subscribe to an email called the “daily dose” from www.chabad.org that has some great stuff like this everyday.  I’m sure other religious sties have something similar.  Any positive reminder or thoughtful note can keep us on the character path.  For those seeking wisdom, the site offers a wonderful section, TheRebbe.org, a joint project of Chabad.org and Jewish Educational Media.
