At Delphi, in ancient Greece, there stood a temple dedicated to Apollo. Carved over the entrance to this temple were two great principles of life: “Know thyself” and “Nothing in excess.” We are concerned here with the first of these wise sayings, “know thyself.” What the Greeks learned by experience, the Bible teaches by revelation: An individual cannot successfully deal with life and its problems if he does not first understand himself. (Prov 14:8 NIV) The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception.
