Wisdom Bestows Well-Being
My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
You can continue on reading in Proverbs Chapter 3 about the Wisdom Bestows Well-Being. I felt to share the first 8 verses today. Have you ever been around someone and they say, "It's up to you". That person is giving you a choice of making a decision. Just like God gives us a choice say, "It's up to you to follow me". God gives us free will and allows us to make decisions everyday of life.
"Will you follow me, said God?" I hope your answer is yes. Following God's word open the plan for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that he has a plan, a promise and a future for each of us. Our yes to God helps someone else too.
As we trust the Lord, we learn to lean to his understanding and not our own. My prayers continues for you and your family.
