Rick Camat: Won $87 million in 2000 and was shot to death by police after he allegedly was firing off a gun at a football game

You think that people learn – but as history repeats itself, others are still making the headlines after a big win is followed by a foolish and stupid choice.

Wisdom is the weapon that will help you navigate through the loops and hops of life and stand out as different. Sometimes it may look like conventional wisdom or if you would ‘common sense’ wisdom, but I am constantly learning to ask God and involve Him in my plans, and it works. YES! It works. I believe that true wisdom is only found in God. A college degree and work experience at best gives you understanding of the subject, and makes you intelligent, but you need more than that. True wisdom!

 Because “what then does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”(Mathew 16:26)

Amen. Debt is killing us as a nation – and has a devastating impact on the spirit and ones faith. Whoever you are slave to rules you.
