A Father's Wise CounselRev. Jim Daughtry, November 18, 2018
Part of the Sunday Morning series.
By the time you read this note Carol and I will be headed out on the road for a few days of vacation. We are so very thankful for the time off that you have made available to us, and we look forward to the spiritual and physical recharge that such an opportunity affords.
As he has done so faithfully many times before, Rev. Jim Daughtry will be filling our pulpit in my absence this coming Sunday. Jim will be preaching a sermon from Proverbs 3:1-12 entitled, “A Father’s Wise Counsel.” I hope you will prepare your hearts for worship by reading this passage, and by praying fervently for Jim as he comes to preach the Word to us.
1My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. 9Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. 11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. (KJV)
