Secure Future Ahead

Proverbs 24:13-14steps

“Eat honey, dear child—it’s good for you—and delicacies that melt in your mouth.  Likewise knowledge, and wisdom for your soul, get that and your future’s secured, your hope is on solid rock.”

Too much of a good thing can result in disaster.  A few sweets are a delight but too many and we destroy our health—our future.  If we are drawn to knowledge as we are to sweets our future is secured.  Knowledge in the path to wisdom!  No knowledge—no wisdom.  Know knowledge—know wisdom.

God gave us all a passion to pursue knowledge in some area.  As we follow this God-given path His wisdom leads us to make wise choices.  Wisdom secures our future—both on this earth and for all eternity.  We are where we are today because of our choices yesterday.  Eat too many sweets and we destroy our health.  Ignore knowledge and we destroy our future.

What does a secure future look like?  Built upon the foundation of accumulated knowledge, the result is wise choices. It is enhanced as we learn to be content with what we have and live within our means.  It is expanded as we put into practice God’s directive of loving others as though it were Him. As we give of ourselves in service to others we find God’s highest blessing is ours.  The result is a security like no amount of money can buy!

God’s Question: What steps are you taking to secure your future?

God’s Promise: A secure future eternally for those who wisely live this life doing for others as unto Me.

My Prayer to God:

I praise You for the simplicity of living for You.

I am sorry I too often think more about self than others (You).

Thank You for daily reminders to be about Your business.

Help me make wise choices about how I invest my time.
