VerseD: Proverbs 3:7

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
Proverbs 3:7, ESV

Do not assume you know more than God or that He lacks understanding. Realize your need for His grace and forgiveness, that His way is right, and that your life is in His hands.

VerseD: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6, ESV

In general, how you raise your children is how they will live their lives and raise their children.

What do you teach the next generation is important? Is God even a part of it?

VerseD: 2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16‭-‬17, ESV

God moved through men to write the Bible. Every word of it can be used for teaching, preaching, correcting sinful behavior, and growing closer to God.

This is why we want to read it regularly. (Daily, if possible!)

VerseD: Joshua 24:15

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15, ESV

We have a choice, every moment of every day, to serve God or reject Him.

How do you choose? Trust God’s Word and the counsel from His Church.

But you must choose.

VerseD: Philippians 1:3

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
Philippians 1:3, ESV

Do you love and pray for the Church? We may not always agree on everything, but it is our family. We should pray for each other with thanksgiving everyday.

VerseD: Isaiah 66:13

As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
Isaiah 66:13, ESV

When Christ returns, all of our fears, pain, grief will be removed and comforted. While we wait, we can cast all our cares and sin on Him.

Seek God in all things.

VerseD: Romans 1:20

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Romans 1:20, ESV

Evidence for God’s existence are everywhere. Some may try to claim they never knew, but God has said otherwise.

The ultimate proof, though, is the resurrection of Jesus.
