I got The Book of Proverbs in the Message translation in the mail as a gift this week. The introduction had an interesting thought that I’ve been pondering and wanted to share:

Wisdom has to do with becoming skillful in honoring our parents and raising our children, handling our money and conducting our lsexual lives, going to work and exercising leadership, using words well and treating friends kindly, eating and drinking healthily, cultivating emotions within ourselves and attitudes toward others that make for peace. Threaded through all of these items is the insistence that the way we think of and respond to God is the most practical thing we do. In matters of everday practicality, nothing, absolutely nothing, takes precedence over God.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.

Just something to think about this weekend!
