Live Longer

Wouldn’t we all like to do that? Proverbs 3 gives a sure fire way to help that happen. It begins with this promise and then adds the list.

 My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart.
 If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. (Proverbs 3:1-2, AMP)

Be loyal and kind, remember Gods words. Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Don’t depend on your own understanding. Seek his will; follow the path he sets out for you. Fear the Lord; appreciate his corrections. Seek God’s wisdom.

Don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Don’t be afraid. Be good to others when it is in your power to do so. Don’t harm your neighbour or pick a fight without reason.

Whew. Lots to remember, but this covers it all. Never forget the things I taught you! (verse 2)

Prayer – Lord, help our memory remember what you taught us and continue to teach us every day! For Christ. Amen
