Proverbs 3:1-12 Reading the Passage

Five Practical Lessons for Christian Living – Proverbs 3:1-12

3 My son, do not forget my teaching, let your heart keep my commandments; (2) for they will give you many years of life and peace. (3) Do not let kindness and integrity forsake you, tie them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart; (4) then you will find favor and a good reputation in the sight of God and man. (5) Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not depend upon your own understanding; (6) in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths. (7) Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Jehovah and turn away from evil. (8) This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. (9) Honor Jehovah with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your harvest; (10) then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. (11) My son, do not reject Jehovah’s discipline, and do not become tired of his rebuke, (12) for Jehovah rebukes those whom he loves, just as a father rebukes the son in whom he delights.
