iTrain30

Reading for Day 15
September 15


Eph. 4:1-16
Psalm 13:1-6
Prov. 3:16-18

I really appreciate what Gary Brown had to say about his friend. I would like to remind you of his comment.

I asked a good friend of mine after Christmas once if he got "everything his heart desired for Christmas," and with a gentle smile he responded, "I already have it." We have the greatest treasure, already, through Christ and His word (forgiveness and eternal life)! No need to search for fulfillment in things (stuff), etc.--Thank you Lord!

What a great expression of Proverbs 3:13-18.

"Happy is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding;
For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies, And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
Length of days is in her right hand, In her left hand riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her."

His words give testimony to the truth of these verses. Wisdom is where it is at; happiness, our desires satisfied, length of days, riches and honor, pleasantness and peace. This pursuit of God with a willingness to learn and change and to be transformed by Him is what we are doing through this iTrain30 exercise. I want to thank those of you who are with me on this journey. I am encouraged by your comments and inspired by your insight.

As I think about my children and the people I love it dawned on me that pretty much that this passage is what I hope for them. In brief, I pray that they will go after Wisdom.

God describes the contrast in these passages between the believer(new man), and the non-believer (Godless). What great things/promises He has in store for those who put their trust in Him! It is only by His grace and mercy that we can claim them.

Be kind and compassionate to others, just as God was kind and compassionate to us. He forgave us. What a gift. David

Great devotion. Only through his wisdom and grace can we succeed in teaching our children to put God first in their lives and make Him their first love.

By wisdom and understanding God founded the earth and established the heavens...

Is it any wonder why these are so important for us.
