July 21: Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
What is life worth living for and how do we add meaning to life itself if it is an unexamined life? Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Charles Spurgeon writes: Is my life a wise one? Am I seeking that which I ought to seek? Am Iiving as I will wish I had lived when I come to die? Only such wisdom can secure for me eternal brightness as of yonder sunlit skies. To be wise is a noble thing in itself and to turn one toward righteousness is to shine like the stars forever and ever.

Charles Spurgeon Faith’s Checkbook: Here is something to wake me up. This is worth living for. To be wise is a noble thing in itself: in this place it refers to a divine wisdom which only the Lord Himself can bestow. Oh, to know myself, my God, my Savior! May I be so divinely taught that I may carry into practice heavenly truth and live in the light of it! Is my life a wise one? Am I seeking that which I ought to seek? Am I living as I shall wish I had lived when I come to die? Only such wisdom can secure for me eternal brightness as of yonder sunlit skies. To be a winner of souls is a glorious attainment. I had need to be wise if I am to turn even one to righteousness; much more if I am to turn many, Oh, for the knowledge of God, of men, of the Word, and of Christ, which will enable me to convert my fellowmen and to convert large numbers of them! I would give myself to this, and never rest till I accomplish it. This will be better than winning stars at court. This will make me a star, a shining star, a star shining forever and ever; yea, more, it will make me shine as many stars. My soul, arouse thyself. Lord, quicken me!
