Remember the other day when I stated chapter 5 was all about adultery. So is chapter 7. Why is there so much talk about this subject in the Bible?

Answer: Is it possible it is a big weakness for many? Of course!

So let's look at what we can all do positively speaking...Proverbs 7:2 states...

Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.

I have an idea. Anyone who goes on a business trip overnight do the following:

1. Do not turn on the TV.
2. Read Psalm 119 over and over until you fall asleep.
3. Take your spouse with you!

Some practical ideas that work!

Perhaps apply them if you are not going on a business trip too!

Have a great day. ~Randy Butler

Proverbs 6 is a rich chapter, yet I have chosen verse 20 which states...

My son, keep your father's commands and do not forsake your mother's teaching.

Why would I share this verse? Because while there is nothing you and I can do concerning the teaching of our parents to us, there is much we can about what we teach our children.

What are you teaching your children?

Are you having family devotions together?

Are you praying together?

Are you going to church together?

Are you talking about spiritual truths on a daily/weekly basis?

Lay a firm foundation for your kids in Jesus Christ, dedicate them to the Lord, and trust God for a tremendous blessing in their fruit.

P.S. Hug your kids if they still live at home. If they do not, send them a text telling them how much you love them!

Have a great day. ~Randy Butler

Proverbs 5 focuses entirely on adultery. How can I encourage you except to say the grass is never greener on the other side. And what looks great today is not likely going to be great tomorrow.

The Bible speaks about contentment and being satisfied with the things of God. Some advice I hear I have used when counseling with people from time to time which states..."grieve and embrace". Let go of that which you do not have and maybe even cannot have, and embrace that which you do have and are able to keep!

My encouragement to you, especially if the waters are rough in your marriage is to trust God more than you trust yourself and others. Give God room to work a miracle in your relationship.

While it is true that the best thing in life is a good marriage and the worst thing in life is a bad marriage, most fall somewhere in-between the two.

I will be sharing in August from the pulpit ways we can strengthen our marriages with 5 tangible practices. Stay tuned.

Have a great day. ~Randy Butler

Proverbs 4:27 states...

Do not swerve to the right or to the left; keep your foot from evil.

Have you ever driven a car while totally exhausted? I have on more than one occasion. Even with the window down, and the radio up loud, my head would bob up and down and I would awake as I was swerving to the right and to the left.

My encouragement to you this day and every day is to be alert so you can prevent spiritual swerving. We swerve when something else gets our attention.

We swerve when we are spiritual tired.

Please spend time each day feeding your soul with the Bible so you can stay alert more easily. Feed your soul with God. And do your best not to get sidetracked with billboards along the spiritual highway of life!

Have a great day. ~Randy Butler

Proverbs 4:23 states...

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

ABOVE ALL ELSE...

Please take time today and write down the things that are most important to you in this life...

ABOVE ALL ELSE...

Please take an inventory on your friends, your plans, your schedule, your dreams and goals...

ABOVE ALL ELSE...

Now, I would invite you to spend some time and jot down ways you can guard your heart. We just learned, it is the highest priority in life!

Have a great day. ~Randy Butler
