Word of Inspiration: You Need Courage to Seek Answers to Life

"Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding; for I give you good doctrine: Do not forsake my law." (Proverbs 4:1-2) 

Think about your children, or nieces and nephews, or your friends' children. Have you ever had the desire to pick up a small child and hug them with delight or take them aside and give them a gift or the gift of advice--some wisdom that helped you? Throughout the Bible the Lord refers to Himself as our Father and we as His children--His "adopted" children. He didn't go through the trouble of having so many people write the Bible, sacrifice their lives to preserve it--for Himself. He already has this wisdom and knowledge. He did it for us. It's our instruction manual--our lifeline. It isn't a book of rules to make your life miserable. If you have the courage to seek it, the Bible, is the answer to many secrets in life. 


Amen to that..this inspires me to do my job today with confidence. Thanks! :)

Truly the Word is the only book that, as Eugene Peterson says, reads us as we read it.

Glad it's inspiring.

Marsha, I haven't thought of it like that. Thank you for sharing that piece of knowledge.
