Proverbs 19:13,14 (KJV)
13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.

Proverbs 19:8,9 (KJV)
8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that more people will have an open heart to You and Your teachings. May they remove all their pride and humble themselves before You today. I know that wisdom will only come inside our hearts and minds, when we are fully open to receive You. We cannot just hear but also be doers of what You say. Lord, what You have shown me is so amazing. I wish everyone could gain the same or similar gifts of the Spirit for they delight my soul. I admit that there was a time that my heart was closed off to Your will but once I opened up to You fully, my life was changed forever. I no longer delighted in the things I could do, but what I could do for You Lord. And this desire has carried forth till this day. In all this time, Your wisdom has been on full display. You have opened my eyes to things I never knew before. This understanding amazes me in every way. For once in my life, I have direction. There is peace in my life. I am filled with Your love. Because of Your hand in my life, I am stronger. I am bold to testify of You. Thank You for changing me. Thank You for seeing my brokenness and helping me become new. I am Yours and You are mine. I love You. Amen.
