Hornets answer bell against Towanda
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team continued to roll through their competition with a 50-9 win against the Towanda Black Knights on Friday, September 15.

“I think our guys are clicking a little bit,” Hildebrand said. “It took us a little while to get started, we were a little slow out of the gate for whatever reason. We can’t do that moving ahead. We played well, we picked it up but we can’t have slow starts.”

“It’s our first away game but a lot of these guys after the last few years are ‘road warriors’ so they’re pretty experienced there. Maybe a change of scenery next week will be good for the guys and we’ll get started quicker.”

Back to Basics – Of Bears & Wisdom
According to the book of Proverbs, you are better off running into an angry mother bear than coming face to face with a fool. And most days, it is likely we will face that threat, because there is no shortage of people making foolish decisions. In fact, you’ve probably made some foolish choices as well…maybe more than you care to admit!

But, there is a way to avoid the dangerous consequences of foolish living. And that is to live wisely. But sometimes that’s easier said than done! We have such limited perspectives — and sometimes we make foolish choices before we even know what hit us. We spend ourselves deep into debt, we wound others with our words, we do something foolish at work, we get into unhealthy relationships, we get addicted to substances we thought would set us free. If only there were someone who could warn us right before we made a foolish mistake.

The God who made us — and who is all wise — who knows everything past, present, and future — has warned us, through His Word. The book of Proverbs happens to be 31 chapters long. Consider taking a month and reading a chapter a day. This practical habit, over time, will pay dividends as you learn the art of wise living.
