Pastor Ron’s Weekly Thoughts

God said What #30

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

A fitting opening to the book written by the wisest mortal to have ever lived (1 Ki. 10:23). It was true 3,000 years ago & it is still true! People usually do not fear that which they cannot see or understand, so modern man is consumed with the temporal. What makes me feel good now? How can I win now? What makes me feel good now? It all goes back to the very beginning the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes & the pride of life (Gen. 3:6; 1 Jn. 2:16). Nothing changes.

 

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. Prov. 1:10

Its too bad that all fathers dont pass this warning down to their children. Could it be that they themselves are too consumed with the passage just above this one?
