Scripture: Proverbs 3:1-18
Observation: Find wisdom but don’t rely on yourself for wisdom. The Lord disciplines you because He loves you, just like a parent would – trust God. Honour God with your wealth.
Application: A lot of the time we think we’re intelligent naturally but as like everything, wisdom is a gift from God, wisdom can be furthered through reading the Bible. Rely on God on times you need to be wise and read the Bible more to increase your wisdom. When we’re going through a time that we perceive as being disciplined by God, it’s only happening because He loves us and we’re going to become a better person afterwards, just like our parents did so if God’s our father why wouldn’t He too? You’ve got to trust God more. When we have money we should always always always use it to serve like helping people less fortunate than us.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I pray that you instil these commands into my heart and I ask for forgiveness for the times I fell short. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
