Proverbs 26 9-26-18

It’s all about the relationship. God welcomes questions, but we must have a right heart attitude. Let’s remember who is God and who is not!

[7] Like a lame man’s legs that hang limp is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.

Knowledge does us no good if we don’t have a relationship with the Father. We may have all the kindling and logs we want in order to make a fire, but without a flame, which is the Holy Spirit, we cannot get the fire started.

Even more important than knowledge is understanding, which comes from seeing from God’s perspective. We can only get that perspective by walking humbly with Him.

We would do well to heed These words:

Micah 6:8 He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Jesus focused the charge to an even finer point:

Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness [through obedience], and all these things [physical necessities along with understanding and discernment] will be given to you as well.

Following Jesus isn’t easy, but it IS simple. Let’s give Him our lives and then commit the next five minutes to intensively live for Him.

Steven Curtis Chapman wrote these words:

Next Five Minutes

I can reminisce about the already

I can worry and fret about the not yet;

But when it all comes down I know it really

Really all comes down to the right now

So right now

I’m living the next 5 minutes

Like these are my last 5 minutes

‘Cause I know the next 5 minutes

May be all I have

And after the next 5 minutes

Turn into the last 5 minutes

I’m taking the next 5 minutes

And starting all over again

Starting all over again (Starting all over again…)

Every moment God is giving is precious

Every heartbeat; every breath I take;

We’ll never have them back once they’ve left us

There will never be another right now

So right now

I’m living the next 5 minutes

Like these are my last 5 minutes

‘Cause I know the next 5 minutes

May be all I have

And after the next 5 minutes

Turn into the last 5 minutes

I’m taking the next 5 minutes

And starting all over again
