Honor the Lord
The book of Proverbs teaches us not to forget the Lord’s teachings but to keep His commands in our hearts. Is this statement applicable today? Are we to keep and obey the Lord’s commandments today? If we are to obey the Word of the Lord, His guidances, His instructions, and His directions today, then that statement is valid.
In Proverbs 3:1 the Scripture immediately tells us why we are not to forget His teachings and to keep His commandments in our hearts. It will prolong our lives many years and bring us peace and prosperity.
In fact, Proverbs teaches us to trust the Lord, not to lean to our own understanding against the Lord’s, submit to Him, not to be wise in our own eyes, for it will bring health to our bodies. It also teaches us to honor the Lord with our wealth which is the way to prosperity.
Do you know long life is in God’s right hand and riches and honour is in His left ? The way to receive from His right and left hand is to find His wisdom, knowledge and understanding, which come through teaching. When we find them, we are not to forget but to obey them.
