Above All – Seek Wisdom

The events of this past week have left me in much prayer, seeking God’s wisdom and His perspective. Let us keep our focus on our LORD and our hearts and mouths on praising Him. May His Spirit guard my our tongues.

This is where I will be meditating today.

My child, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in mind.
Then you will live a long time, and your life will be successful.

Don’t ever forget kindness and truth.
Wear them like a necklace. Write them on your heart as if on a tablet.
Then you will be respected and will please both God and people.

Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding.
Remember the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success.

Don’t depend on your own wisdom.
Respect the Lord and refuse to do wrong.
Then your body will be healthy, and your bones will be strong.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and the first fruits from all your crops.
Then your barns will be full, and your wine barrels will overflow with new wine.

My child, do not reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t get angry when he corrects you.
The Lord corrects those he loves, just as parents correct the child they delight in.

Happy is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gets understanding.       Proverbs 3:1-13 (NCV)
