Keep Spiritually Sharp

Ecclesiastes 10:10 NLT … Since a dull ax requires great strength, sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.

From NetBible Ecc 10:10

  • The point is that it is a waste of a great deal of strength and energy. If a person is not smart{wise}, he will have to use a lot of energy and waste his efficiency.
