Take This to Heart

14 May

God’s Word:  Proverbs 4:1-9

God’s Message to Me:

Ignore good advice and suffer the consequences!  Thinking you can “beat the odds” is foolish living.  Look at the prisons, overflowing with those who thought they could “beat the odds.”  Look at the families destroyed and generations hurt because of foolish choices.

Parents are instructed to train their children for living life.  Their advice is meant to guide the child safely through life.  But when the parents go bad, the effect has far-reaching consequences.  Many try to blame the error of their ways on bad parenting, always blaming another for their own foolish choices.  Parents teach their children either the way to live their lives or the way not to live their lives.  Woe to the parents who gives their child a bad example.

My Word is given to provide you with a hope and a future.  Families who ignore My Word suffer, and when the family suffers those consequences are carried to the entire world.  The family unit is the world in miniature.  To ignore the advice of My Word is foolishness.  It was provided to bless and guide you in a life of wise living.  And that is the path to peace and joy everlasting.  Take My wisdom to heart or suffer the consequences.  Wisdom is My gift to those who make good choices.

God’s Question to Me:  Do the choices of your life reflect wisdom or did you let that good advice go in one ear and out the other?

God’s Promise to Me:  Wise living will make your life glorious, garland your life with grace and festoon your days with beauty.

My Song to God:

No one understands like Jesus;
He’s a Friend beyond com-pare.
Meet Him at the throne of mercy;
He is waiting for You there.

CHORUS:
No one understands like Jesus
When the days are dark and grim.
No one is so near, so dear as Jesus;
Cast Your every care on Him.

VERSE 2:
No understands like Jesus;
Every woe He sees and feels.
Tenderly He whispers comfort,
And the broken heart He heals.

CHORUS:
No one understands like Jesus
When the days are dark and grim.
No one is so near, so dear as Jesus;
Cast Your every care on Him.

VERSE 3:
No one understands like Jesus
When the foes of life assail.
You should never be discouraged;
Jesus cares and will not fail.

CHORUS:
No one understands like Jesus
When the days are dark and grim.
No one is so near, so dear as Jesus;
Cast Your every care on Him.

VERSE 4:
NO one understands like Jesus
When you falter on the way.
Though you fail Him, sadly fail Him,
He will pardon You today.

CHORUS:
No one understands like Jesus
When the days are dark and grim.
No one is so near, so dear as Jesus;
Cast Your every care on Him.
