Morning Direction From Scripture 10-2-20

My son, do not forget my teaching,
    but keep my commands in your heart,
for they will prolong your life many years
    and bring you peace and prosperity.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
    bind them around your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
    in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:1-10

Why do you think we are counselled against being wise in our own eyes?

  1. Seeing with our own eyes or seeing with God’s eyes? Big difference and not at all easy to do. Like lean not to our own understanding. Seeing the world through our own eyes leads to following them into evil??

  2. Because generally my “vision”/perception/wisdom could aptly be described as “stupid”! The best thing about getting older is that I know this now, so I’m quicker about asking God than I used to be.
