Word Filled Wednesday



A wise man
is strong,
Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength; Proverbs 24:5


"Good, Better, Best, never let is rest, until your good is better, and your better is best." Have you ever heard that cute little rhyme? It is an encouragement to continually be striving and reaching for better. We all desire to be stronger, wiser and more knowledgeable. With each step in the right direction, we increase and gain in those areas.

Some simple ways to exercise, stretch, reach and grow can be found in a few key areas:

Dependability: If you say that you will do it - follow up and do it. Strive to be a person who is dependable and can be counted on. Start small but follow through.

Integrity: Let integrity guide each decision. It has been said that “Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.” Seek the Lord for His guidance and follow that leading when indecisive times come. Do the right thing!

Faithfulness: Faithfulness is loyalty and commitment. It is not drifting on to new or more exciting opportunities, it staying with your commitment to the end. Faithfulness is of course key in marriage, but also in friendships, church and social obligations and any area which we are a part of.

When we serve the Lord, He is the ultimate example of faithfulness, love and guidance. He gives us an abundant source of wisdom, grace, mercy and strength. He has the path laid out before us, may we always continually strive to grow in His grace and knowledge.
