Proverbs (4)

Bible Reading: Proverbs 4:13-27
Saturday, October 25, 2014

Proverbs (4)Many people today remind us that we need to protect ourselves from physical sicknesses. The world is full of things that can hurt us or make us sick. But there are also other things that can hurt us mentally and spiritually.

If someone says something bad about us or hurts our feelings, we may become angry and want to hurt them back. When we refuse to forgive someone, our bad thoughts control our bodies. Then we may become depressed or get sick easily. We need to remember that we need to keep our hearts and minds clean, too.

Following God and His Word will help us have healthy bodies, hearts and minds. Solomon’s words today teach us to stay away from evil and close to God. “Don’t take the path of the wicked; don’t follow those who do evil. Stay away from that path; don’t even go near it. Turn around and go another way” (verse 14-15).

Be careful to guard your body, your heart and your mind today. Follow God and His Word. — KP

“Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life. Make sure you are going the right way, and nothing will make you fall.” Proverbs 4:23,26

PRAYER: Lord, I want to obey You and Your Word today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
