“The Wise will Listen/Follow”……

My son, do not forget my teaching,
       but keep my commands in your heart,

 for they will prolong your life many years
       and bring you prosperity.

 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
       bind them around your neck,
       write them on the tablet of your heart.

 Then you will win favor and a good name
       in the sight of God and man.

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
       and lean not on your own understanding;

 in all your ways acknowledge him,
       and he will make your paths straight.

 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
       fear the LORD and shun evil.

 This will bring health to your body
       and nourishment to your bones.

 Honor the LORD with your wealth,
       with the firstfruits of all your crops;

 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
       and your vats will brim over with new wine.

  My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline
       and do not resent his rebuke,

  because the LORD disciplines those he loves,
       as a father [b] the son he delights in.

 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
       the man who gains understanding,

 for she is more profitable than silver
       and yields better returns than gold.

 She is more precious than rubies;
       nothing you desire can compare with her.

 Long life is in her right hand;
       in her left hand are riches and honor.

  Her ways are pleasant ways,
       and all her paths are peace.

  She is a tree of life to those who embrace her;
       those who lay hold of her will be blessed.

  By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations,
       by understanding he set the heavens in place;

  by his knowledge the deeps were divided,
       and the clouds let drop the dew.

  My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment,
       do not let them out of your sight;

  they will be life for you,
       an ornament to grace your neck.

  Then you will go on your way in safety,
       and your foot will not stumble;

  when you lie down, you will not be afraid;
       when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

Have no fear of sudden disaster
       or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

  for the LORD will be your confidence
       and will keep your foot from being snared.

  Do not withhold good from those who deserve it,
       when it is in your power to act.

  Do not say to your neighbor,
       “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow”—
       when you now have it with you.

  Do not plot harm against your neighbor,
       who lives trustfully near you.

  Do not accuse a man for no reason—
       when he has done you no harm.

  Do not envy a violent man
       or choose any of his ways,

  for the LORD detests a perverse man
       but takes the upright into his confidence.

  The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
       but he blesses the home of the righteous.

  He mocks proud mockers
       but gives grace to the humble.

  The wise inherit honor,
       but fools he holds up to shame

Be Bold

Be WILLING 2 RECEIVE/FOLLOW God’s WORD

Be READY to Inherit Honor thru YOUR ACTIONS……… 

ENOUGH SAID in Jesus Name!!

    If you are wise, then, know that you have been created for the glory of God and your own eternal salvation. This is your goal; this is the center of your life; this is the treasure of your heart. If you reach this goal, you will find happiness. If you fail to reach it, you will find misery.
    May you consider truly good whatever leads to your goal and truly evil whatever makes you fall away from it. Prosperity and adversity, wealth and poverty, health and sickness, honors and humiliations, life and death, in the mind of the wise man, are not to be sought for their own sake, nor avoided for their own sake. But if they contribute to the glory of God and your eternal happiness, then they are good and should be sought. If they detract from this, they are evil and must be avoided. !LOVE DAD!

    I am very much aware of areas in my own life where my mind desperately needs that transforming which can only come from Jesus. It is encouraging to see ways where it has already happened to a degree, but I have a long way to go. My commitment as a Christian is to keep my eyes on Jesus so the process will continue; my hope as a person is that each of you will join me in that process, and that I can be a helper and an encourager for you in that process of being like our Lord.
    I want to challenge each of us to be one of those people the world cannot understand because our minds are being remolded so that we are like Jesus. Maybe it won’t be a case where we literally sell ourselves or pull the one who is out to kill us to safety (we just don’t know things like that ahead of time), but if the mind of Jesus is our standard we will be different.
