Words of Wisdom on the Seventh Day
Proverbs 26
 
Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, honor is not fitting for a fool.
 
Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.
 
A whip for the horse, a halter for the donkey, and a rod for the backs of fools! Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.
 
Like cutting off one’s feet or drinking violence is the sending of a message by the hand of a fool. Like a lame man’s legs that hang limp is a proverb in the mouth of a fool. Like tying a stone in a sling is the giving of honor to a fool. Like a thornbush in a drunkard’s hand is a proverb in the mouth of a fool. Like an archer who wounds at random is he who hires a fool or any passer-by.
 
As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
 
The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!” As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed.
 
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who answer discreetly.
 
Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own.
 
Like a madman shooting firebrands or deadly arrows is a man who deceives his neighbor and says, “I was only joking!”
 
Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife. The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts.
 
Like a coating of glaze over earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart.
 
A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit. Though his speech is charming, do not believe him, for seven abominations fill his heart. His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
 
If a man digs a pit, he will fall into it; if a man rolls a stone, it will roll back on him.
 
A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.

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!
