Start your School Year with Proverbs- Day 4

Devotion for Thursday, August 25, 2011

Amazing Night at H2O:
Last night was amazing!  Thanks for inviting your friends, and being faithful to the mission that God has set us on!  Some of you worked really hard on the “Grow” stage so that your friends/family could get to the “Know” stage.  So cool!

Today’s Passage:

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. 24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. 25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. 26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
Proverbs 4:23-27

Application Questions:
1. What does he mean when he says “keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”? v.23
2. Do you think what we say is important?  What does it mean to use froward or perverse language?  How is that harmful?  v.24
3. In Verse 25, the author says to think about the direction you are going?  How can this help you?
4. Once you’ve decided to go on the path that God has for you, the author says don’t go “to the right hand nor to the left”.  What do you think that means?  What are some things that can take you off track from the path that God has for you? v.26-27.
