Good Morning March 31

“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 peace and 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 submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:1-6) I read a lot in the media of how people have messed up their lives. There are problems of one sort an another, especially with relationships. Oh how I wish more people would simply heed the wisdom here in Proverbs. We are still sinful being. We would not have a utopia, but our Creator has given us a way of life that is for our good. He has also done all that is necessary for us to follow that way of life. In Jesus Christ we have forgiveness for all that is past, and grace and strength for all that is ahead. “Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding.”(vs.13)
