    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.
  • Marcel
    I thinking that God wants us to love and honour him willfully, in spite of fear, we should abide in His word , because it makes our lives a little easier to navigate, and gives us the ability to help others, and mature in the process of Him perfecting us. He loves us in spite of our faults and forgives, and is just and fair what more could we ask for.
