Reflection: Proverbs 3:1-6

In 2021, Our Given Purpose: Bible Study and Daily Devotional extended Christian Mommas a collaboration opportunity. The opportunity was taken with delight to continue advancing God’s kingdom through written words. Collaborating with fellow believers often provides the encouragement we all need to keep walking in our God-given purpose. Here is an excerpt from my first monthly contribution:

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:1-6

Be blessed as you read.

If today was your last day on earth, do you know where you will spend eternity? Are you sure you will make it to heaven? If you are not sure, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.

Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen

Welcome to God’s family!
