Why is it that most people don’t know or chose not to know just some simple facts about life? Did you know one of the dictionary definitions for the word stupid is “lacking common sense”,understand? Where am I going with this?
Proverbs 2:1 in the Passion Translation says, “My child, will you treasure my wisdom? Then, and only then, will you acquire it. And only if you accept my advice and hide it within you will you succeed. V.6 Wisdom is a gift from a generous God,….He becomes your personal bodyguard as you follow His ways, protecting and guarding you as you choose what is right. Then you will discover all that is just, proper and fair and be empowered to make the right decisions as you walk into your destiny.”
Continuing in V.11, “If you choose to follow good counsel, Devine design will watch over you and understanding will protect you from making poor choices.” In V.12, “ It will rescue you from evil in disguise and from those who speak duplicities. For they have left the highway of holiness and walk in the ways of darkness.” V.14 “They take pleasure when evil prospers and thoroughly enjoy a lifestyle of sin.” V.20 “Follow those who follow wisdom and stay on the right path.”
V.21-22, “For all my godly lovers will enjoy life to the fullest and will inherit their destinies. But the treacherous ones who love darkness will not only lose all THEY COULD have had, they will lose even their own souls!”
Isn’t that something to think about?
