Proverbs 4: 20-27 (NIV)
"My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them
and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your way. Do not turn to the right or the left;keep your foot from evil."
Being Christians we must regularly read the Bible for guidance on how to live our lives. It is our responsibility to prioritise time within our sometimes busy schedule. It is impossible to walk in fruitfulness and righteousness when we do not live by God's standards. We can only do so if we know what God expects of us. The Word of God brings healing, understanding, knowledge, wisdom and comfort. The Word fills us anew and keeps us on the correct path.
