Trust in the Lord

15 October 2017

‘My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,   for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.    Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them round your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.    Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man.    Trust in the  Lord  with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;    in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.    Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the  Lord  and shun evil.    This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.    Honour the  Lord  with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;    then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.    My son, do not despise the  Lord ’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke,    because the  Lord  disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.   ‘

Prov. 3:1-12
