Proverbs 4

New King James Version (NKJV)
Security in Wisdom

4 Hear, my children, the instruction of a father,
And give attention to know understanding;
2 For I give you good doctrine:
Do not forsake my law.
3 When I was my father’s son,
Tender and the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 He also taught me, and said to me:
“Let your heart retain my words;
Keep my commands, and live.
5 Get wisdom! Get understanding!
Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you;
Love her, and she will keep you.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head an ornament of grace;
A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”

10 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings,
And the years of your life will be many.
11 I have taught you in the way of wisdom;
I have led you in right paths.
12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered,
And when you run, you will not stumble.
13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go;
Keep her, for she is your life.

14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
And do not walk in the way of evil.
15 Avoid it, do not travel on it;
Turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they do not sleep unless they have done evil;
And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And drink the wine of violence.

18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun,[a]
That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know what makes them stumble.

20 My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth,
And put perverse lips far from you.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,
And your eyelids look right before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet,
And let all your ways be established.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left;
Remove your foot from evil.

Key Verse for me 7 Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.

when I don't understand I will trust GOD even more

    emoticon I always receive great motivation when I read scriptures!

    Best of luck with your program and your challenges!!!

    I just wrote a blog about a PSYCHOLOGY TODAY article that might interest you... it talks about overcoming our "inner con-artist"... "STOP horsing around with our weight loss!" The scriptures are FULL of scriptures about how important it is to "set our minds..." on positive life goals.

    This article talks about recognizing and DEALING WITH our "Inner Con-Artist"... YOU MUST BEAT THE INNER CON-ARTIST!!! Eating temptations will accompany you throughout your life.... When "white knuckling" doesn't work for you, alternatives are given.

    Catch the inner Con-Artist by THINKING about your thinking. You may hear the word "later" iterating through your mind. The "I'll stop later" message also can erupt while you're eating fattening food or using addictive substances.

    We hope to see you in SparkNashville's "Town Square" chat thread again!!!

    This one spoke to me:

    Ponder the path of your feet,
    And let all your ways be established.
    Do not turn to the right or the left
