We sit in church and listen to what the preacher has to say.

But do we do what the Word commands of us each day?

It says to study to show yourself approved,

So you will be able to withstand the deceptions and lies of the devil,

which God has disapproved.

Watch what you say and do

Because God is always looking at you.

Don’t pretend to be wise and know the Word of God thinking you are cool.

Know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Apply the Word in your life, and a wise and understanding person you will be.

Don’t settle for less, when you can have God’s best.

Know that He is in control, and He will give you rest.

Acknowledge Him in all your ways,

And He will take you to heights thought unreachable throughout the days.
