This Little Light of Mine

20170503_163308

“The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one’s inmost being.” 

Proverbs 20: 27

I think this verse is telling us that God works through us, and specifically through our spirits (the internal part that we cannot see).

Our spirit is so important, that it serves as a lamp. Remember the children’s song “This Little Light of Mine”?

And when He does work through us, we indeed become light for ourselves and for others.

Heavenly Father, help us to live for you and be a light shining brightly! Amen.

Those Who Plan What is Good

20170531_193908

“It is a sin to despise one’s neighbor,

but blessed is the one who is kind

to the needy.

Do not those who plot evil go astray?

But those who plan what is good

find love and faithfulness.”

Proverbs 14: 21, 22

It’s interesting that these two verses are next to each other. God truly cares about our neighbors and we should too. Remember the two greatest commandments?

And I love the idea that there are blessings in caring for the poor. It’s my opinion, (just my opinion) that this includes providing health care, instead of trying to take it away.

Let us plan too, good things for ourselves and others.

Lord God please help us to be the kind, caring people You want us to be, including caring for the needy. Amen.

Wisdom is Found

20170317_130233

“Where there is strife, there is pride,

but wisdom is found

in those who take advice.”

Proverbs 13:10

Ever notice how you can trust someone that is humble enough to take advice?

Lord God, help us to listen, as you speak to us, through people we know and trust. Amen.

Wisdom Is Found

“Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.

Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money

little by little makes it grow.”

 

Proverbs 13: 10, 11
