VerseD: Proverbs 10:17

Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.
Proverbs 10:17, ESV

Obedience is more important to God than most anything. Rejecting His leadings and law is not only dangerous to you but compounded as you lead others to disobedience.

Have a devoted love to wisdom and read the thoughts at Proverbial Thought!

Please join me in celebrating with my friends, Dr. and Mrs. Steven & Amanda Churchill! Yesterday they blessed me with the opportunity to join their lives together in holy matrimony! (It was also my first time in New Orleans, LA!)

Now that we have adequately praised God for love and covenants, please note that the poem has absolutely nothing to do with their relationship! It was simply next in the line up!

There has been a systemic problem in the Western Church for a while, one that is gradually (and thankfully) being approached once again with fervor!

There is a rampant biblical and theological illiteracy amongst the faithful in our culture. We have been creating a people blind and deaf to the things of God, giving them instead a steady diet of fluff and half-truths.

Fortunately for us, God always has a faithful remnant whom He empowers to lead in strength and wisdom. May we be such a people as we await His return!

   blind and deaf
what is the church
have we become
as blind and deaf
as everyone
whom we try
to lead to Him
Who can heal us
and forgive sin
what do we have
that is different
from this world
and all in it
are we merely
the blind leading
the blind all while
we are screaming
to a whole world
who cannot hear
and we ourselves
cannot bear
to face the truth
that we are blind
that we are deaf
and lack insight
from God above
about our state
that looks just like
a world depraved
we must stop
our calling out
to those who are
wandering about
but see ourselves
in the light of truth
and destitute
then our Lord will
send us to them
that we might lead
them straight to Him
then the blind and deaf
will see and hear
and Jesus will wipe
all of our tears

Remember, Proverbs 31 was written as advice from a mother, so go find some godly, maternal wisdom at Proverbial Thought!

The poem today is also fitting, as it talks about walking the right way. Parents are supposed to help guide their children, and that is exactly what God wishes to do with all of those adopted through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.

                    just off the path

they call it the straight and narrow

but just how well can we follow

what if in all of our attempts

just to the right or the left

is where it turns out we have

been in relation to the path

what if while we have been talking

with those with whom we are walking

only to come to realize

that our half truths are still lies

not really following Christ

but being just to the left or right

instead of walking just off the path

we should have our thoughts recast

we should line up our lives

with His loving heart and mind

to remain on the path of God

we must watch where our minds trod

we must study the scriptures

and look to our Savior

break bread with one another

and help our needy brothers

we need to pray continually

and praise our God Almighty

to stay on the Path of our King

we need to give Him everything
