Wise Words from Pharaoh Akhenaton - Be Upright in Your Whole Life ...

Pin It

Be upright in your whole life; be content in all its changes; so shall you make your profit out of all occurrences; so shall everything that happens to you be the source of praise.         ~Pharaoh Akhenaton

This quote is so full of rich thoughts to dwell on.  It makes me think of a few Bible verses...

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, UPRIGHT, and godly lives in the present age... Titus 2:11-12

For I have learned to whatever situation I am to be CONTENT.  Philippians 4:11b

REJOICE ALWAYS, pray without ceasing, GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I don't know where Pharaoh Akhenaton got all of his wisdom from, but the truth in this quote is so profound.  Learning to be content is something that we all need to work on continually.  Being able to give praise (to God) in everything that happens is difficult at times, but so necessary!  Being upright in my whole life is a monumental task, but once again worth striving for.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I was thinking about how we often gripe at the change of seasons weather-wise, but how we should be content in the cold winter months both physically and figuratively in our lives. I thought the tree was a good representation of that!
