Read Proverbs 4:1 through 7:27
Published: Apr 23, 2017
A few weeks after moving to a new town and starting a new job, Chad had some new friends. One of them invited him to his apartment to watch the ballgame. When Chad arrived, the place was packed with people drinking alcohol and doing drugs. No one was watching the game. After a few minutes, Chad headed for the door as words his dad had spoken years before echoed in his mind: “drugs and alcohol just lead to trouble.”
My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Bind them always on your heart; fasten them around your neck (Proverbs 6:20–21).
Although the above verse is part of a section warning against perils of adultery, it can apply to any circumstance about which the Heavenly Father has spoken. Following His guidance will keep us from making mistakes in this life.
Challenge for Today: Seek godly counsel.
Quicklook: Proverbs 6:20–23
