More Than Bread Devotional for 7/7/08

Proverbs 7:1-4
1 My son, keep my words
and store up my commands within you.
2 Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
3 Bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
and call understanding your kinsman;

I was thinking a few days ago about the wisdom of living God’s way.  Proverbs has a lot of great tidbits for life and wisdom from God for doing things His way.  The writer here tells us to store up God’s commands within us and to write them on our heart.  If we read God’s Word consistently and with a desire to learn, the Holy Spirit will use it to transform us.  We will live well, because we are following the “Owner’s manual”.
