Verse of the Day

My son, if you receive my word,
And treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment ,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD
And find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.
When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you, [...]
Proverbs 2:1-11

I've started reading Proverbs to my kids during breakfast after being reminded to it by a friend.  This one jumped at me this morning...

Al bought this new childrens Bible, it's called "the Jesus Storybook Bible"- by Sally Lloyd-Jones. It is SO awesome. Al has been telling me about it for a long time and I was like "Oh ..OK a kids bible is a kids bible"...cheesy. The bible stories all point back to Jesus. And I pretty much tear up at every storytime(: you gotta check it out.
