Sunday Song

Proverbs 3
1 My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
9 Honor the LORD with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.

In the Bible we are commanded to honor our mother and father. Today, in the U.S., is a day to honor our fathers. However, there is one Father that should always be honored and praised every day.

God is faithful, just, long-suffering, kind, loving, and forgiving. He provides, sustains us, and protects. He does countless more than our earthly fathers can or will.

When we honor God with our obedience and praise, He will bless us. In fact, like most fathers, He chooses to bless in spite of ourselves, sometimes.

As I said earlier this week, God is good. He's been quite gentle with me, and trust me, I've been thanking Him for that, a lot.

Happy Father's Day to those of you blessed with children. :)

Well said as usual.

Yep, the Bible is full of goodness that we need (meaning I) to embrace much more.
