Dearest One,
 
Listen to some fatherly advice; sit up and take notice so you’ll know how to live. I’m giving you good counsel; don’t let it go in one ear and out the other.  Proverbs 4:1 The Message
My son, do not forget my law, “But let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you. “Bind them around your necks. Write them on the tablet of...

(19) But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you...

It is human nature to make out own plans and then ask God to bless them.  Instead, we should seek God's will first.

O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.  (2) I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.  (3) Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.  (4) I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.  (5)...

The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.   (6)  Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk.  1 Timothy 1: 5-6 NIV

My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?  Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.  James 3:12 NIV
Our contradictory speech  often puzzles us.  At times our words are right and pleasing to God, but at other times they are violent and destructive.  Which of these speech patterns reflects our true identity?
The tongue gives us a picture of our basic human nature.  We were made in god's image, but we have also fallen  into...

The wealth of the rich is thier fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall.  Proverbs 18:11 NIV
In imagining that their wealth is their strongest defense rich people are sadly mistaken.  Money cannot provide safety- there are too many ways for it to lose its power.  the government may cease to back it, thieves may steal it, inflation may rob it of all value.  But God never loses His power.
He is always dependable.  Where do you look for security and...

Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in his name, He gave the right to become children of God -- (13) children born not of natural descent, not of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.  John 1: 12-13 NIV
