Proverbs 22

Proverbs 22

“A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life. Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked; whoever guards his soul will keep far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge, but he overthrows the words of the traitor.
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge,
That your trust may be in the Lord, I have made them known to you today, even to you.
to make you know what is right and true, that you may give a true answer to those who sent you?”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭22:1, 4-6, 12, 15, 17, 19, 21‬ ‭
Instruction and humility are the signal markers of the daily walk that are part of the race of those who will overcome. As it is our responsibility to watch over our children and instruct them and guide them to follow correctly for their safety so God reveals His principles and wisdom through nature and His Holy word that we might better understand His character and our duty as the crowning point of His creation, made in His image. Learning from the pruning process or hearing a rebuke to help us learn is easier to hear and grow from if we let go of the pride that is part of our selfish nature and focus on humility and uncompromising search for truth and wisdom. God had given us His word both in the scriptures and in the life of His son which the scriptures point to of which it is written “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬. This isn’t just an instruction manual Gods word holds the oracles He gave to His prophets to show us we have the truth we can believe and in the perfect life of Jesus through whom the world was not only created but also redeemed. “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭1:1-2‬ To show us the importance of studying these prophecies not just to give us understanding of these last days but to reveal to us His character and help us join the ministry of witnessing to a world covered in lies and darkness. “Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.””
‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭ “And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭5:11‬ Have an awesome day!
