Day 310 Proverbs 29:3 Proverbs 29:3 Whoso loves wisdom rejoices his father: but he that keeps company with harlots spends his substance. If you’ve ever heard, participated in, or listened to office gossip, what was the main subject other than possible gripes about the company you worked for? Didn’t you hear about everyone you knew and their latest shame? Solomon observed human behavior, which is why he could write as many proverbs as he did and correlate them to how a person should live. God gave him wisdom in every decision he made, but he also gave him common sense, something he didn’t observe much in the people. Common sense keeps you away from office gossip. Common sense brings wisdom to your life and makes your parents proud of you. Common sense brings about promotions and gives you a good standing among your friends. Solomon taught by proverbs, Jesus taught by parables. Both showed a person how to live and work among their peers. Both showed what God required of them, by living according to God’s law. Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. (KJV) The scribes in Jesus’ day presented a watered-down law. They gave their own interpretation to the Law of Moses, and did not present it the way God intended. When you live your life watered-down, telling yourself you’re a Christian, but living your life on your terms, you will run after any wind of doctrine and miss what God has for you. However, when you take up the Word of God in your hands, read it, study it, and put it into practice, you won’t run after the vain things of this world, hoping to find God, but you will know his heart and his will for your life. Then wisdom will guide you and you will not be a matter of shame to your parents, but they will rejoice and be proud of you. Let’s pray: Father, help me to always look to you for guidance, listening to your heart – your Word – and being obedient to it. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Amen! A miracle either precedes or follows obedience. If we obey, we will be blessed.
