And the Winner is. . .

God’s Word:  Proverbs 14:14-35

God’s Message to Me:

An unlucky loser is shunned by all, but everyone loves a winner.   You can be a winner in the game of life!  I’ve provided you with the rule book that will put you at the head of the class.  If you want to win—really win, then read the whole rulebook.

The book of Proverbs is the condensed version of how to be a winner. Read often and heed daily and you too fill find yourself a winner.  Wisdom, with a good dose of common sense, is the advice you find here.

1. Be gracious—you will be shown grace. 

2. Be prudent—sift and weigh every thing you are told.

3. Be cautious—watch your steps and avoid evil!

4. Be compassionate—reach out to the poor and honor God!

5. Be thoughtful—win love and trust!

6. Be truthful—stop the spread of lies!

7. Be slow to anger—eager to forgive!

Integrity of living creates a country of winners.  Compromise your integrity and you compromise your life—family—country.  God devotion makes a country strong: God-avoidance makes a country weak.

God’s Question to Me:  Will you make the wise choice to read My rule book instead of stumbling through life without a compass?

God’s Promise to Me:  A life of integrity, lived with wisdom and common sense not only helps you, your family, your country, but it blesses and honors Me as well.

My Song to God:   Thy Word   by Michael W Smith and Amy Grant

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path

When I feel afraid
And think I’ve lost my way
Still, You’re there right beside me
Nothing will I fear
As long as You are near
Please be near me to the end

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path

I will not forget
Your love for me and yet
My heart forever is wandering
Jesus by my guide
And hold me to Your side
And I will love You to the end

Nothing will I fear
As long as You are near
Please be near me to the end

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
And a light unto my path
You’re the light unto my path
