    I thank Almighty GOD for the book of Proverbs because its a book of wise instructions and the world would be in a better condition if every human being under the plan it earth would take heed to the book I want to encourage everyone to take heed to the word of God so that we escape the wrath which us to come JESUS CHRIST gave his life for all humanity and if one goes to hell we have no excuse

    Parents, please raise your children and don't let the TV, social media, and celebrities do it for you. Don't be afraid to tell them "no" when they ask for something that is not good for them. Chastise them when they are wrong and above all else, let them know that Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life. Spend quality time with them and tell them that you love them often. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, so make the most of the time you have with them.

    BE OBEDIENT TO THE WORD, PRAY, AND LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, FOR THE FLESH IS WEAK AND WE MUST DAILY STRENGTHEN SELF TO DISCERN

    Proverbs 1 inclines us to seek wisdom at every turn and capitalize off understanding on convenient terms for our own purposes as opposed to aligning our faith with God's promise. The premise is on being consistent out of gratitude. Understanding it's all a blessing as we live and learn.
