The Well Within

9 Jul

God’s Word:  Proverbs 20:1-11

God’s Message to Me:

Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart; a wise person draws from the well within. The life of the individual demonstrates the quality of water in their inner well.  The digging of this well of life begins with the child.  Parents who train up a child in the way they should go prevent themselves, and their child, a world of hurt.  The earlier you begin digging the well within—the better.

A wise person not only knows what is right, but chooses to do what is right.  God-loyal people, living honest lives, make it much easier for their children.  Children perceive right and wrong by the actions of the parents.  You teach more by what you do than what you say.  Let your children observe you drawing deep from the well of right-living within.

Ignore the quality of water in your well within and live and die to regret it.  Future generations are affected by your care for your own well within.  I’ve provided you with the instructions for drilling your well of living water—the Bible can be depended upon to provide you and future generations plenty of pure living water to draw from and bless all those around you.

God’s Question to Me:  Is your well within stagnant, bitter or sweet life giving?

God’s Promise to Me:  I will preserve your well within if you see your enemy hungry and go buy him lunch; or if he’s thirsty, you bring him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness, and I will keep your well within flowing sweet and pure.

My Song to God:      I’ve got a River of Life    by L. Casebolt

I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me!

Makes the lame to walk, and the blind to see.

Opens prison doors, sets the captives free!

I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me!

Spring up, O well, within my soul!

Spring up, O well, and make me whole!

Spring up, O well, and give to me

That life abundantly.
