If Your Looking To Change

If your looking to change, to grow, to become new, better, pure, and to live a life pleasing to the Lord. Dive head first into the book of Proverbs; but be warned, it is not to be taken lightly, it is extremely convicting and not for the tenderhearted only searching for feel good advice.

Rather it is for the seeker who seeks to become wise.

It is for those who seek to live godly lives. It is not to be used for retaliation towards another, but to change the one reading and studying it.

It is to be used for growth, insight, understanding, knowledge, and wisdom.

The Book of Proverbs is to teach us wisdom and discipline. It is written to give us instruction in discipline, good conduct, and doing what is right, just and fair.

The benefits weaved all throughout it are life-changing, life-shaping, and rewarding.

"Take my words to heart. Follow my instructions and you will live. Learn to be wise and develop good judgement. Don't forget or turn away from my words. Don't turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do! And whatever else you do, get good judgement. If you prize wisdom, she will exalt you. Embrace her and she will honor you. She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown." Proverbs 4:4-9
