Proverb of the day

 

There is no single act that can help you more than reading and practicing God’s word each day.  One of the best books to help you make wise choices is the Book of Proverbs.  In the Proverb of the day, chapter 28, for August 28th, we read, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:  but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” (Proverb 28:13)

Better to admit your fault and get on with life than to pretend you’re perfect.

How contrary this is to today’s common philosophy.  Many would hide their faults, reject counsel, avoid correction and protect their self-image.  God reminds us those who trust in themselves are foolish, but those who live wisely will be kept safe.

Open up God’s word and receive help for this day and all that is before you.

Pastor Gene
