There is so much adoration for bravery and cleverness but to me, it is most times a show of how unwise we really are.
Bravery is when you act against a heavy obstacle or a powerful opponent; it is sheer bravery when you do it all alone.
Cleverness is when you attend to a matter that has reached near doom and requires much skillfulness and ingenuity.
WISDOM is not bravery nor is it cleverness. It is more of winning without battle/war and solving problems before they even appear to be a problem. Wisdom is what will ensure peace in a nation; it is what will put it in order. Bravery and cleverness are just like short term qualities needed in executing what wisdom has conceptualize.
Let no man think bravery can sustain him till the end for he will wear out along the way and even if he makes it to the end, his rest would be spent in recovery.
Let no man think cleverness can take him till the end for at a point in his journey, he will meet a situation that is beyond his cleverness. At most, he will devise inappropriate means to scale through huddles. And at the end, he would be paranoid for he knows that he has not provided lasting solution to the problems he faced.
It is wisdom to think ahead and design processes for the journey ahead. It also wisdom not to show bravery when team dynamics is available; it is wisdom to attend to matters definitely and not cut corners just to evade the problems.
The unpalatable truth is that solutions provided through WISDOM is never appreciated at first; it is always seen as bad at the onset but after all is said and done, it would surely be celebrated and accorded due accolades but this may be in the absence of those who initiated it.
Peace To The Wise!
