As an added way to feel connected and close to each other, my wife and I have chosen to read the bible together. This month we’ll read Proverbs. December has 31 days. Proverbs has 31 Chapters. Perfect!
As I read Chapter 1, a few verses really stood out to me.
Verses 2-7 explain why serving the Lord is so important. Who doesn’t want to gain wisdom & discipline? Who doesn’t want to live a disciplined and prudent life? Fools! That’s who. I’m done being a fool. I’m done living in conflict & turmoil. I’m done fighting the system and the men in it.
My focus is to serve the Lord. To live my life according to the scriptures.
Verse 33 lists just a few blessings that are in store for me, and anyone else who chooses to follow the word of God.
Today I will focus on only today. I will keep my spirit in the word of God as I apply His teachings in my life. Today I will serve the Lord!
I absolutely love reading and discussing the scriptures with my wife. We are 900 miles apart, yet we feel so close. The love in our marriage is precious. And the love of the Lord is beautiful.
