As I was reading Psalms today, I came around this verse: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” -Psalm 118:24
Ah… Think about that. This is the day that the Lord has made. The Lord has made every day.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it! 🙂
Now, off to day 15 of the Proverbs Challenge.
Proverbs 15:1, 3-4, 6-7, 13, 16, 18-19, 22-25, 29-30, 33
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings them trouble. The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools. A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit. Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil. A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel. The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway. Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. A man finds joy in giving an apt reply – and how good is a timely word! The path of life leads upward for the wise to keep him from going down to the grave. The Lord tears down the proud man’s house but he keeps the widows boundaries intact. The Lord is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous. A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
