Yesterday I wrote a little bit about God having the power to light your way. I thought I would follow that up with a little real guidance on one way he does that – straight from the wisdom of Solomon, and something that is on my mind this week.
20 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen to my words. 21 Never let them get away from you. Remember them and keep them in your heart. 22 They will give life and health to anyone who understands them. 23 Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. 24 Never say anything that isn’t true. Have nothing to do with lies and misleading words. 25 Look straight ahead with honest confidence; don’t hang your head in shame. 26 Plan carefully what you do, and whatever you do will turn out right. 27 Avoid evil and walk straight ahead. Don’t go one step off the right way. Proverbs 4:20-27 Good News Translation (GNT)
