Proverbs 4
Now Playing: Where do our feet take us?
Topic: Verses

We have much wisdom for our pathway given for us to consider in the divinely inspired words of Solomon recorded in Proverbs chapter 4 (selected verses).

(v.5) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

(v.6) Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

(v.7) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

(v.10) Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

(v.11) I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

(v.12) When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

(v.13) Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

(v.14) Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

(v.15) Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

(v.16) For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

(v.17) For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

(v.18) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

(v.19) The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

(v.20) My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

(v.21) Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

(v.22) For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

(v.23) Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

(v.24) Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

(v.25) Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

(v.26) Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

(v.27) Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Now Playing: What paths do we take?
Topic: Verses

Below are a number of wonderful verses from the Psalms on which to meditate this week:

Psalms 16:11 - Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fulness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms 17:4 - Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Psalms 23:3 - He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.

Psalms 25:4 - Shew me Thy ways, O LORD; teach me Thy paths.

Psalms 25:10 - All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Psalms 27:11 - Teach me Thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

Psalms 77:19 - Thy way is in the sea, and Thy path in the great waters, and Thy footsteps are not known.

Psalms 119:35 - Make me to go in the path of Thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

Psalms 119:105 - Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psalms 139:3 - Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

Psalms 142:3 - When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then Thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

Plain Path
Now Playing: Can we find it?
Topic: Pathway
In the fields of mathematics and science there are some questions for which there ARE answers, and some questions for which there ARE NOT (given our current knowledge). We can be thankful, that God has given us everything we need to know in His Word. This is the beginning of a meditation on the path of the believer, 1) Can we find it? 2) What is it? and 3) What can we use to guide us?

In the book of Job, chapter 28, he is searching for wisdom, and searching for answers. In verse 7 (see also Proverbs 4:11) it is recorded, "There is a Path" (King James Version). Has the Divine Creator given us enough information so we can walk in this complex, modern world? In verses 12 and 20, Job asks "where shall wisdom be found...where is the place of understanding". We believe God has given us some guidance. This will be taken up over a period of many weeks. God's truth can take time to sink in, and we want to give careful attention to everything He has given us in His Word (Colossians 2:3, Hebrews 2:1).
