The LORD’s purpose prevails

ReadingListen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.

What a person desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar.

The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.

A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!

Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge.

Whoever robs their father and drives out their mother is a child who brings shame and disgrace.

Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.

A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.

Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:20-29‬ ‭(NIV)

Pray: Father, may we take time to seek your will.  Help us to accept your leading even when our plans must take second place.  Amen

Every blessing
