My son, pay attention to my words; listen closely to my sayings. Don’t lose sight of them; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to one’s whole body.(Proverbs 4:20-22 HCSB)
Paying attention to God’s Word is not as easy as it once was. Today we have a multitude of distractions. Busyness seems to be a disease shared by everyone. We all have more than we can do.
Yet . . . God doesn’t change. His Word doesn’t change. It still says the same thing it did a thousand years ago and it will still say the same thing a thousand years from now.–A Devotion
“Give attention to my words….” We are confronted with a choice. What is most important? To what shall we give our limited time? God, or….? God makes promises no one else does or can. He created, so He knows how things work.
Life is a race, run it. Life in its fullness. Life as God intended it to be. And health. Isn’t that what everyone would like? That is the written guarantee offered by God to the human race for paying attention to what He has said.
