"We can justify our every deed, but God looks at our motives.
God is more pleased when we are just and fair than when we give him gifts." - Proverbs 21:2-3
I am challenged by the clear message of Proverbs, as each sentence is a direct word to our fragile hearts. The book of Proverbs helps me to look in the mirror and to be honest about my life and faith. There can be no hiding away from the Lord and from how the Spirit works in our lives.
David Brainerd - "The all-seeing eye of God beheld our deplorable state; infinite pity touched the heart of the Father of mercies; and infinite wisdom laid the plan of our recovery."
Francis Bacon - "A prudent question is one-half of wisdom."
