MORNINGTIME 2781
 
Apply thine heart unto Instruction, and thine ears to the words of Knowledge. My son, if thine Heart be wise, my Heart shall rejoice, even mine. Yea, my "reins"  (seat of emotion and affection) shall rejoice, when thy lips speak Right Things. Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in The Fear Of The Lord all the day long. Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in The Way. Buy the Truth, and sell it not; also Wisdom, and Instruction, and Understanding. The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have Joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be Glad, and she that bare thee shall Rejoice. My son, give me thine Heart, and let thine eyes observe My Ways. Proverbs 23:12,15-17,19, 23-26. The Bible, The Word of God, is an amazing Book. It's big enough to support great theological doctrines, yet at the same time small enough to give little tid-bits of Wisdom that can encourage you all day long. If you have the Mind of some great Master, the Bible can give you food for thought. If you can only handle small morsels of Knowledge and Wisdom, the Bible is still the book for you. Anyone who truly Loves the Lord will find all the Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding he can possibly try to Grow into. It's given Great Preachers all they need to give "meat and potatoes" for an hour or more to a Hungry congregation searching for the "Deep Things" of God. It's given little thoughts to someone wanting to share a little encouragement with a friend. THE BIBLE HAS IT ALL. This is why The Bible tells us "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth". 2 Timothy 2:15. This "study" verse is actually a Command for us to Follow, not some suggestion to think about. Only a Love For Christ will keep us in His Word, and only A Love For Others will compel us to share that Word with others, that they to will, Be Blessed.
