Prayer Monday

My dad’s favorite scriptures were all through the Proverbs.  He had many verses highlighted.  Here is one section he had highlighted.

Proverbs 3:1-6  1-2 My son, never forget the things I’ve taught you. If you want a long and satisfying life, closely follow my instructions. 3 Never tire of loyalty and kindness. Hold these virtues tightly. Write them deep within your heart. 4-5 If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself.6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.

My daddy taught me these things by being a living example and doing these things faithfully. He trusted The Lord completely and he put God first.  He is now in heaven being crowned for his efforts.  What kind of legacy are you leaving behind for your children to follow?? Are you loyal and kind? Are you trusting in the Lord completely ? Are you putting God first in EVERYTHING you do?  Take some time to reflect on these things !
