Enjoying Every Moment
January 30, 2024

DAILY PROVERB:

Proverbs 3:1-4
My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

        There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day; days make months, months make years, and years placed together make a lifetime. To experience a lifetime, you must live each and every second of that life. You cannot skip a few seconds here and there at will; you must live them all. You might ask, “What if I’m in a coma? I would miss lots of time.” Not true. You might not remember the time, but you lived it, and you were affecting the lives of many around you. This chapter in Proverbs begins by reminding us to live each moment of life. 

     “Forget not my law;” Life’s guidelines are found in God’s Word. Why? Because living according to God’s design will grant you “length of days.” Not merely time spent, but truly embracing each moment of every day. The blessing of an obedient life leads to better days.

      Another benefit is “long life.” Not just a sequence of good days but also a reason to cherish those days. Today, many people say, “I have no reason to live,” and even young people are committing suicide at alarming rates. However, if you live life according to God’s way, He will guide you toward a meaningful purpose in life.

      Furthermore, you can have “peace.” The world may be engulfed in daily conflicts, yet you can still find inner peace. Peace in your heart for each day you live with God’s guidance and peace in your soul as you anticipate your eternal dwelling with Him—a peace the world cannot provide.

      How can this life be ours? By holding “mercy and truth,” two moral characteristics, close to our hearts. Mercy eliminates selfishness and hatred toward others, while truth keeps us from dishonesty and hypocrisy. A moral life indeed matters.     

 

THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

     Everyone wants people to be real with them. We all hate phonies and liars. People also want to “find favour,” or be loved by others. If “mercy and truth” were to guide all our lives, what a better place this world would become. It does not begin with others first; it starts with you and me. Let’s enjoy every moment of life.

How might you “find favour” today
by extending God’s mercy and truth to someone else?

IF YOU ARE JOURNALING:

Ask yourself, what are MY THOUGHTS concerning this Passage, and todays Devotion?

Do I find within this reading a CHALLENGE for my life?

What are one or two things I WILL DO today or this week to accept that CHALLENGE?
