Word of Wisdom

Proverbs 20:1 A wise man does not allow alcohol to mock him!

Administrator 0 178 Article rating: 5.0

Everyone likes to have a good time.  However, when it comes to alcohol, there is a hidden danger. Alcoholism is the third leading cause of PREVENTABLE deaths in the U.S.   More than 10%of U.S. children live with a parent with alcohol problems.  Alcohol destroys families and destinies.   The joy of the Lord is our strength and that joy comes when we are filled with His Spirit!   "And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit" -Ephesians 5:18

Proverbs 14:15 Test what you hear against the truth

Administrator 0 171 Article rating: No rating

There are many voices in the world vying for our attention and assent.  We have to distinguish between the harmful and the helpful.  Jesus said it this way, "Beware of the leaven of the Scribes and Pharisees!".  Some people do not take the time to consider what they hear and test it against the truth.  This proverb calls these people SIMPLE.  God imparts wisdom to those who take the time to seriously CONSIDER what they hear in the light of His principles.  Failure to follow this pattern results in spiritual blindness!  Each morning, we should ask God to give us OUR daily bread!

How do you ensure the prosperity of your children and grand-children?  First, you must understand that accumulating money and other assets is not the key!  Many rich kids have troubled lives and squander their inheritance.  You have to invest in the character development of your children.   People who are honest, wise, and industrious will be entrusted with true riches by God and man.

Proverbs 9:2-3a What you need to succeed has been prepared for you

Larry Shepard 0 157 Article rating: No rating

We all want to succeed. The wisdom needed to succeed in life is available to all of us. Wisdom has issued her invitation "Come and eat!". Many cannot hear the call because life is noisy. Others have heard the invitation, but they do not value it. Success is found by those who respond to the call , come to the table, and eat.
