Proverbs 4:10-18 (KJV)
Proverbs 4:26 (KJV)
The sooner you evaluate your path the better off you will be
Evaluating your path regularly leads to safety and increases your likelihood of hearing from God.
The biblical record shows that Jesus wove into the fabric of his every day life the disciplines of prayer, solitude, reflection and worship. When faced with major decisions,His pattern was to withdraw from the crowds around Him and devote time to solitude and prayer.
Jesus practiced the power of the pause. He would pause and then take purposeful, intentional action.

The Path of the Wicked
It leads to a stumble and a fall. Its leads to you giving your honor to another and your years unto the cruel.

The Great Adventure Pt. 1: The 3rd Son

Philippians 1:23-25

It’s better to be used by God than to be blessed by God.

3 John 1

The two most important things to find and stay connected to in this life are:
1. God the Father
2. God’s plan for your life

Luke 15:21-22
Luke 15:25-28

2 Corinthians 5:18-20

It’s wrong to have the entire focus of our Christianity to be the elimination of sin and the pursuit of the best. Jesus desires to give us a grace for both of those things, but also an unbridled passion for the reconciliation of the lost and hurting.

Safest place to be in all the will of God.

Jesus didn’t come to make us safe, He came to make us meaningful.

Hebrews 11:32-38

Is it safe?
