Life’s Instruction Manual

proverbs 3 1-2

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:1-2

Do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.

People often joke about life not coming with an instruction manual. It actually does, it’s called The Holy Bible. The Book of Proverbs is an excellent place to start if you’re looking for instructions. It is an example of the Biblical wisdom tradition, and raises questions of values, moral behavior, the meaning of human life, and right conduct. (Wikipedia) If we live our lives according to God’s commands and keep His Word in our heart we can avoid many problems and live a long, peaceful and prosperous life.  Even better than that, we can live forever in heaven.

God’s Ways

Psalm 119 15

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:15

I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.

A precept is a command or a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought.  Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them. Think about how He wants you to respond. Let God’s precepts direct you in the way you should go. God’s ways are pure and good and they are always better than our own. Keep God’s Word in your heart and let it guide your steps through life.
