I am working my way the Book of Proverbs at the moment. Each day I read a chapter based on the date. Today was Proverbs 21.
Three verses jumped out at me today. They are great advice for life.
1. Listen to the poor and help
“Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need. (V13)
2. Seek righteousness and love
Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor. (V21)
3. Think before you speak
Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.” (V23)
These verses jumped out at me today. They are gold that will make a difference to our lives and the lives of others.
Dear God, thank You for Proverbs 21. Help me to put its lessons into practice. Help me to listen to the poor, seek righteousness and think before I speak. Amen.
