Today’s scripture reading: Proverbs 3
The text in Proverbs 3 opens with two “never”s so we do well to attend to their instruction.
• “Never forget the things I have taught you” [verse 1] and “never let loyalty and kindness leave you” [verse 3].
How much suffering has come into and remains in the world as a result of what we have forgotten or allowed?
How different would our lives be had we not forgotten, whether intentional or accident, critical instruction given to us by any number of people?
What value system in our lives have we allowed to slip from not up for compromise to total compromise?
Take a moment to write down three things you were taught that continue to shape your life today.
If you have discounted loyalty or neglected kindness, take the time today to reboot your commitment to these two vital issues.
If there are bridges in need of mending don’t hesitate to make those corrections; you’ll be healing more people than you know!
Peace and blessing!
