Proverbs 4

 

Proverbs 4:26-27:

 

26 Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.

Proverbs 4:26-27 (ESV)

 

What to say about this?  Ponder the path of your feet!  Consider where you are and where you're going.  If you don't put your feet in the wrong place, you won't be in the wrong place.

 

Consider, for example, the number of stories of a marriage falling apart that begin with a spouse being by themselves in a place where being alone just wasn't good.  Whether it was at a party or on a long trip or at a distant movie shoot location or in your own home on a rainy night.  Why did your feet put you there? 

 

Or the temptation to do other sinful things….where did your feet take you and why did you make that choice?

 

Likewise, you can choose to make your feet take you to places that will accomplish what you need.  When you wake up, make sure your feet are headed to the floor, to your Bible, to work, to school, wherever you need to be headed to! 

 

On Sundays, let your feet be with God's people to grow and worship.  Throughout the week, let your feet take you where there are people that need the love of Jesus. 

 

Then, what your hand finds to do, do it.  Let your feet put you in the right place so that your hands will have good work, your eyes see the glory of God, your mouth speak the truth to ears that need to hear.

 

After all, we all want beautiful feet. (Romans 10:9-13)

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
