Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; don’t rely on your own intelligence, Know him in all your paths, and he will keep your ways straight.”
This verse stood out to me because it is very true. It can relate to anybody, whatever they are going through. Problems in work, struggles in school, etc. If you trust in God, everything will work out. If you try to make your own path, you will make mistakes, God may not send you down the path you want, but the path that is the best for you.
Dear God, Thank you for always looking out for us and keeping us on the right path. Thank you for dying on the cross and forgiving our sins so when we stray from the path, you will make it straight again. In your name we pray, Amen.
Proverbs 14:29 “Patience leads to abundant understanding, but impatience leads to stupid mistakes.”
This is an important verse to me because I am not the most patient person, and I’ve learned that it never ends up well. It can end in an argument with someone you care about, and can even lead to the end of important relationships. We need to be patient and understanding to others no matter what. That is what God would want us to do, after all.
Dear God, please help us to be king, patient, and understanding to everyone around us, even if they are really frustrating. Help us to be your example through your patience. In your name we pray, Amen.
Matthew 22:39 “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”
I picked out this Bible verse because it is a very simple verse but also very important. It says you should love and respect strangers, friends, and family as you would yourself. In that you may make someone’s entire day, and maybe even their whole week, by just giving them the respect and praise you would yourself.
Dear Lord, please help us love and respect others as we would ourselves, as you would do. Amen.
