Here is a taste of some of the proverbs that’ll be in the book I hope to put on the site in the coming weeks. I also hope to put the book on Amazon.
It will be titled ‘Proverbs for Today’
Those who wear headphones all day miss half their surroundings.
Don’t walk around in a dream if you want to be the best you can be. Fantasy is a pleasant diversion for a time but a constantly distracted mind will miss half of the wonders God places before us each and every day. They will help us prepare for Heaven.
Fantasy is good for two things – recreation, and to help the creative devise their works. If you are creative you will know the trap of giving in to fantasy. Ask God to help you to balance your thoughts – to keep the creative fantasies in their right place.
Size is of no magnitude, height is of no measure, fame is of no import, depth of mind has no meaning; only rightness with God truly exists.
We have so many biases, prejudices, beliefs which clash with the truth. Fame, wealth, strength and intelligence are all gifts from God but they are not to be worshipped. Worship the one who bestows the gifts instead.
What are the worldly qualities you admire most? Does this effect your relationships with people in an ungodly way? Pray that God teach you to admire those things which are most important.
I’ll be posting a few more of these on occasion in the coming weeks.
