Proverbs 28

Click or touch “Firestarter”
To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

I passed a little plot of ground on a street in New York City. It had been spared from having a building upon it or blacktop for parked cars. The space was carefully cleared, grass and flowers planted, a sign fixed to the chain link fence about it, inviting passersby to pause and enjoy the garden.

Do you feel as though your days are as busy and crowded as a street in a big city? Proverbs are as little gardens for you to pass along the way, watering your soul with the refreshing and sobering truths contained in each perfect, tiny space of earthy wisdom. Take time to rest and relish the riches that God offers you in the Word. The Spirit waits for you to stop plummeting forward in haste, but to pause often.

May your pace not be so fast that the Lord has to run to catch up with you!

Receive God into your heart, moment by moment.
