Today’s reading is Proverbs 20-21.
“No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel
can avail against the Lord.”
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?
