If you want to get a real handle on the way to live your life today, just turn to the book of Proverbs. Almost any chapter will do but here are a few instructions found in the 21st chapter.
1. To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
2. The way of the guilty is devious but the conduct of the innocent is upright.
3. The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
And keep this one very close to your heart today, “There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.”
From the writings of Wendell Harris
