Hear My son, (and daughters) and receive My sayings, and years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life. Proverbs 4:10-13
Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction." Only those who have made Jesus their Lord enter by the narrow gate, being led by Holy Spirit, but the rest traverse the broad road that leads to Hell!
Proverbs holds the keys to the path of life, giving those who take to heart the wisdom they contain, light to be able to discern their way! Today there are many roads that lead to Hell because of false prophets, teachers and self-help gurus and the Way has been darkened by their poisonous doctrines of health, wealth and success! Jesus said to beware because in the last days there would be many of them and so there are.
Although Solomon was the wisest man on the planet, given the gift of wisdom by God Himself doesn't necessarily mean he also received the gift of common sense, because he had 1000 wives and concubines, many of whom were pagan women that eventually led him down the path of the wicked! So, with this in mind, keep your eyes open and flee youthful lusts, resist the devil and he will flee!
Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:26,27
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
