Good morning … Great is His faithfulness


Proverbs 3 – Reading and breakdown – End with a reading from John 14:27


Broken down from my Orthodox Study Bible - I had fun with the highlighter this morning … In Christ love Jared W Campbell - This mornings reads should have been Hebrews 7:24-26; *;1-2; and John 10:1-16, and that was read 2 days ago, so I decided to continue talking about the heart, I pray you all enjoy this morning breakdown …


"THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING WISDOM - (CHRIST) AND HIS WAYS, STARTS IN THE HEART, PLANT THAT SEED TODAY AND WATCH IT SPREAD THROUGHOUT OUR BODIES, SOULS, AND MINDS, IT'S TRULY BEAUTIFUL WHEN YOU LET CHRIST INTO YOU HEARTS"


THE LAWS OF WISDOM – Proverbs 3:1-10


(See v. 1,2) – FORGETFULNESS is forgetting of Wisdom’s (Christ’s) laws on virtue, and the cure and it’s beginning starts with OBEDIENCE from the HEART to WISDOM … This obedience is what leads down a road of life and peace … The Holy Spirit gives us peace …


FAITHFULNESS – Proverbs 3:4-10 –


Faithfulness in almsgiving – (v. 3) is a manifestation of obedience to Wisdom – (Christ) from the HEART, and helps us all not to forget His laws … For the one who forgets the laws of Wisdom exalts his own wisdom – (v. 5), and stumbles on the straight path – (v. 6), relies on his own discernment – (v. 7, and turns to evil passions – (v. 7) … BUT ALMSGIVING is part of the golden chain around one’s neck – (v. 3, see also Proverbs 1:10) … Anyone who is attached to material possessions will soon forsake Wisdom and His Laws – (v. 3) …


INSTRUCTION OF WISDOM – Proverbs 3:11-22


- Rebellion is an offspring of forgetfulness because of a heart that despises and faints under Wisdom’s instructions – one is REPROOF – (v. 11) … For Wisdom instructs and chastises His children, because He loves them – (v. 12; see also Hebrews 12:5, 6); otherwise, they would forget God and fall into rebellion against Him … But the education of Wisdom leads to discernment – (v. 13) and righteousness – (v. 18)


“Those who know Christ will find Him to be the true riches – (vv. 14, 15, 17) – please see video for further discussion …


THE CURE OF CARELESSNESS – Proverbs 3:23-38


The one who forgets Wisdom becomes careless – (v. 23) … This happens because of fearfulness – (v. 27), intimidation – (v. 28), unfaithfulness in almsgiving – (vv. 30, 31), betrayal – (v. 32), quarrelsome – (v. 33), lawlessness – (vv. 34, 35), the CURSE OF GOD – (v. 36), arrogance – (v. 37), and dishonor – (v. 38) … The cure is found in – (v. 25) is the grace of the virtues: discernment, righteousness, courage, self- control – (GRACE AROUND YOU NECK, v. 24) …


John 14:27

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

PEACE BE WITH YOU, GO IN PEACE – MAY THE LORD BRING YOU ALL PEACE …


Numbers 6:24-26


“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
