Words of Wisdom on the Seventh Day
Proverbs 24
 
Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.
 
By wisdom, a house is built, and through understanding, it is established; through knowledge, its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.
 
A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength; for waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers.
 
Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the assembly at the gate he has nothing to say. He who plots evil will be known as a schemer.
 
The schemes of folly are sin, and men detest a mocker. If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!
 
Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?
 
Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
 
Do not lie in wait like an outlaw against a righteous man’s house, do not raid his dwelling place; for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.
 
Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from him.
 
Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of the wicked, for the evil man has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out.
 
Fear the Lord and the king, my son, and do not join with the rebellious, for those two will send sudden destruction upon them, and who knows what calamities they can bring?
 
These also are sayings of the wise: To show partiality in judging is not good:
 
Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent”—peoples will curse him and nations denounce him. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come upon them.
 
An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.
 
Finish your outdoor work and get your fields ready; after that, build your house.
 
Do not testify against your neighbor without cause, or use your lips to deceive.
 
Do not say, “I’ll do to him as he has done to me; I’ll pay that man back for what he did.”
 
I went past the field of the sluggard, past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgment; thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins. I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.

You are invited to have a personal relationship with God, your Creator!

To have a personal relationship with God, you must become a follower of Jesus. There is no other way. This decision must be a personal commitment from the heart. No one else can decide for you. This is the most important decision you will make in this life.  Here are the steps to become a child of God and experience His love and all of His blessings today:

Know that God loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
and whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
(John 3:16)
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
(I John 3:1)

    
Admit that you have sinned against God.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away... there is no one who does good,
not even one. (Romans 3:10-12)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)


    Believe and Receive Jesus Christ as Savior.
He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.
(Acts 16:30-31)
 
But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God. (John
1:12)
  
Pray this prayer of commitment:
     Lord Jesus, I know that you love me. I admit that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.
I choose to believe that You died to forgive me and to follow you.
Right now, I receive you as my Savior and Lord, and ask you to come into my life forever. 
Thank you for hearing my prayer and giving me eternal life today.
      Amen
 
Declare your faith and let others know you have decided to follow Jesus
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10)
  
Trusting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the most important thing you can ever do.
We would like to help you learn more if you have accepted Christ as your personal Savior. 
Send us an email so that we may send you some helpful literature.
This will help you begin your new life in Christ and you will be taking the next step of declaring your faith to others.
Please tell us about your new faith in Jesus today!
