The Promised Reward

Proverbs 11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner. Thought: We will all receive a reward and reap what we sow.

Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. Thought: He who seeks wisdom is blessed by finding God’s favor.

The True Blessing

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Thought: The blessing and approval of our God always brings joy. It is His opinion that really matters. In our 21st century, one of the most significant areas for individuals is their career. What you do with your life, where you work, and your education accomplishments are all important areas to be somebody in the world today. There is an inner motivation that…
