Proverbs of a 40 yr. old man

Just the smallest act of obedience can connect us to the wisdom and power available for us in Christ. Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin. With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. "For if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” LORD help us to obey your word. To give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. And still more importantly obey matters of the law like justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should practice the latter, without neglecting the former. When I obey, I allow God to open the windows of heaven and pour out his blessing over me! Christ’s riches that He makes available to us are not material but spiritual. The unsearchable riches of Christ provide salvation to everyone who believes. We may be the worst of sinners, yet Jesus can forgive us and transform our lives. It is the gift that truly keeps on giving, as we are changed, by God’s Spirit, into “loving, happy, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled” people. King Solomon was a man of great riches and wisdom, and his fame spread throughout the known world. Dignitaries from other countries came to hear his wisdom and see his lavish display of wealth. Scripture says that Solomon had no equal in the earth at that time: “King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth” (verse 23). Yet, for all that, Solomon’s riches were not unsearchable. They could be quantified; the gold bars could be counted, and he had no inexhaustible supply of silver. Besides that, Solomon’s riches were only the temporal treasures of this world. Jesus is “greater than Solomon”. The treasures of Christ are inexhaustible, they are unsearchable, and they are forever. So, whether we like it or not, we will obey the LORD our God to whom we are sending you with our plea. For if we obey him, everything will turn out well for us.”
