_ 080216 WISDOM

(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning and give all praise to the Father that keeps us on the path and moving forward. As I sat down to start this process, the word “wisdom” popped into my head so of course you know that’s where the message is going today. Let the words bless you.

Today’s Prayer

Father, as we look around the world we see chaos, discord, and famine. We find our own nation a microcosm of the world and its problems. As we face changes proposed to create a “cultural shift” in our nation, help us not to be too quick to discard our past heritage. Instead, let us re-study the dreams, foresight, and the dedication of the founders of our nation, predicated on the Judeo-Christian ethic. Give us a desire to know the truth; for fear that we indeed “perish from lack of knowledge.”* Help us to search out history books written before they were “cleansed” and re-written to fit today’s scholars’ self-serving agendas. Wake us up as a nation, and as Christians to see that we need to reclaim our Godly heritage. Help us to realize that Christianity is always in danger of extinction in every generation unless it is kept viable and passed on to our youth. Oh Lord, give us courage, for it will not be easy. And guide us as we seek to know and to live within Your will. In JESUS’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Fathers Exhortation: Acquire Wisdom

Proverbs 1: 8-19

Listen, my child, to what your father teaches you. Don’t neglect your mother’s teaching. What you learn from them will crown you with grace and clothe you with honor. My child, if sinners entice you, turn your back on them! They may say, “Come and join us. Let’s hide and kill someone! Let’s ambush the innocent! Let’s swallow them alive as the grave swallows its victims. Though they are in the prime of life, they will go down into the pit of death. And the loot we’ll get! We’ll fill our houses with all kinds of things! Come on, throw in your lot with us; we’ll split our loot with you.” Don’t go along with them, my child! Stay far away from their paths. They rush to commit crimes. They hurry to commit murder. When a bird sees a trap being set, it stays away. But not these people! They set an ambush for themselves; they booby-trap their own lives! Such is the fate of all who are greedy for gain. It ends up robbing them of life.

Quote of the Day

Wisdom is the power to see and the inclination to choose the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it.
