Day 21: Finding Favor

“Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:  bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart; so shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.”  – Proverbs 3:3-4

Said differently…Don’t let mercy and truth abandon you, rather, hold them close and take them to heart.  Honor God and His favor shall be yours.

In Day 19, we considered the definition of “honor” – that is, to celebrate and recognize; to fulfill an obligation.  “…to honor God is, perhaps, to celebrate and recognize Him openly and proudly, while keeping our obligation to adhere to His commandments.

Note that “love” and “favor” are two different things.  God always loves us and always stands ready for us, yet His favor is granted when we pursue and honor Him.

M46 Challenge:  Talk to your children about how favor can increase in their life through honoring God and those in authority around them.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, thank you for your favor.  I ask that your favor will continue to increase in my life and the life of my daughter, causing us to have great opportunities with you and mankind.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thoughts:  We need to teach our children how to honor God.  A few suggested examples and topics for discussion:  prayer, worship, tithing, giving of time and talents, testimony, and allowing God into our heart.

Next time, we will consider the importance of wisdom.

Have an amazing day!   And…

Keep it Lit,

T.
