HAVE A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

Thursday, January 20, 2011

My Child Never Forget

My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my instructions in your heart. If you do this, you’ll live for many years, and your life will be prosperous. Accept discipline from the Lord, and don't be upset when He corrects you. For the Lord corrects those He loves, just as I correct you because I delight in you.

Trust
Love the Lord and trust Him with all your heart; and don’t depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Don't be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and stay away from wrong doing. Then you’ll have healing for your body and strength for your bones.

Prosperity
Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you possess. Then He’ll fill your house with material goods, and your affluence will overflow to others.

Wisdom
Wisdom and Understanding will bring you joy; because wisdom is more beneficial than silver, and its rewards are better than gold.
  • It is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with it.
  • It offers you long life in your right hand, and riches and honor in your left.
  • It will guide you down pleasant paths; and all its ways are satisfying.
Wisdom is a tree of life if you embrace it; and you’ll experience happiness if you hold it securely.
  
The Lord created the earth by wisdom; and by understanding He created the heavens. Also, by His knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.

Be Considerate
When it's in your power to help others, don’t withhold good from those who deserve it. If you can help your neighbor now, don't say, "Come back tomorrow, and then I'll help you."

  • Don't plot harm against your neighbor, for those who live nearby trust you.
  • Don't pick a fight without reason, when no one has done you harm.
Security
Common Sense and Discernment are important, don’t lose sight of them. Hold on to them, for they will refresh your spirit. They are like jewels on a necklace. They’ll keep you safe on your way in life, and your feet will not stumble.

You’ll go to bed without fear; you’ll lie down and your sleep will be sweet. You will not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon others, for the Lord is your security. He’ll keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

Loyalty
Never let Loyalty and Kindness leave you! Embrace them; hide them deep within your heart as a reminder. Then you’ll find favor with both God and people, and you’ll earn a good reputation.

Friendship
Model the life of Godly people, observe their ways, for the Lord is a friend to the godly and He blesses the home of the upright.

Therefore, As you progress in life, remember to Honor your Parents, for the Lord is gracious to the humble and He exalts the wise with honor.

Taken from Proverbs 3. (Paraphrased by Errol Webber)
