Wisdom For Each Day – July 1, 2014

The Puritans were ready to order their personal life, worship, church, business affairs, political views, even recreation according to the Bible’s commandments.  What a contrast between the conduct of those earlier Christians and the permissiveness of our day!

Millions today want instant gratification.  The whole world seems bent on pleasure, and there is an alarming preoccupation with self.  When nations or individuals live only for pleasure, they begin to die morally and spiritually, oblivious to God’s will and scornful of His judgment.

The Puritans knew that the life of faith is a struggle.  Still they persevered in their faith.  May it be said of us that our faith is “the business of [our] lives.”

The proverbs of Solomon…for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair.

Proverbs 1:1, 3
