What is our motive when we speak?
“A fool does not delight in understanding,
But only in revealing his own mind.” (Proverbs 18:2 NASB)
There is nothing more important on this Earth than our relationship with the L-RD. Everything else must stand aside. His Law is precious and born out of Love.
When evil is on the horizon (i.e. temptation), what is your response? Run or foolishly think you can brave it? (Proverbs 22:3)
When you deliver correction to your children, is it in anger or do you mourn and deliver it in Love? (Proverbs 22:6)
Though we may be under attack, trust in and wait upon the L-RD (Psalm 56)
