Proverbs 28:11-18 (NIV)

Luke 9:43-48 (NIV)

“Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.” (Psalm 146:5)

Blessed- that is, deeply happy, with a happiness and joy that cannot be taken away, that endures through anything in life- “are those whose help…and hope is in the Lord their God.”

What does it mean to live with one’s help and hope in the Lord?

Proverbs 28:11-28 is a list or a series of snapshots of what faith looks like in real life.  Take a few moments and read through these proverbs on the life of faith.  What would they look like in your every day life?

Then Jesus adds to this by teaching the disciples who desired greatness, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.” (Luke 9:48)

May you welcome the presence, inspiration, and guidance of Jesus in your life as you go through this day and any day.
