Today’s reading is Proverbs 20-21.

“No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel
can avail against the Lord.”
Proverbs 21:30

Why bother? Why even try to go against God? Why not just do what He says? Do you honestly think you can trick Him? Beat Him? Outmaneuver Him? Out think Him? It’s not going to happen. Look, you don’t tug on superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger, and though someone finally came along and beat Jim (ask your parents, maybe your grandparents), no one will ever beat God. Quit beating your head against a wall, just surrender to Him and do what He says?

Tomorrow’s reading is Proverbs 22-23.

A Word for Our Kids

Hey kids, please remember this: “Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.” Anyone who says differently is selling something. Arguments range long and wide on this topic. I will simply ask you to remember what wisdom says about it.
