November 4, 2018 - Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness – Rev. Baard
Scripture: Selections from Proverbs 3
My child, do not forget my teaching,
But let your heart keep my commandments;
for length of days and years of life
and abundant welfare they will give you.
Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own insight.
Blessed are those who find wisdom,
and those who get understanding,
for her income is better than silver,
and her revenue better than gold.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
Wisdom is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
