Discussion for Proverbs 3:2

  • Lakisha for verse 2
    I BELIEVE, IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE RIGHT AND OBEY GOD, EVIL WILL NOT TOUCH YOU.
  • There are many people who believe, when someone dies, it's simply "their time to go.." But those people should read this verse. Keeping God's law and His commandments will add time to our lives, and will allow us to live out the 70 years God promised us. Those who are not living by God's words and are living in sin, are getting their lives cut short. You want a long, peaceful life? Serve Jesus and keep His word and laws all the days of our lives.
