A Six Part Series On Proverbs 3:5-6
Have you ever heard someone use the phrase, “Trust no one?” It sounds like a really cool spy movie tagline. It may also be the life motto of an independent (and very lonely) person. But it is really not possible. Everything we do is based on trust in someone or something. The defining question is not if you will trust, but who you will trust. This question is the basis of our study of Proverbs 3:5-6. I have broken these verses down in six parts:
- in the Lord
- with all your heart
- and do not lean on your own understanding.
- In all your ways acknowledge Him
- and He will make your paths straight.
I will write a post for each one. Many times we spit out popular passages like this without taking the time to take a deep look into them. C.H. Spurgeon once said, “visit many good books, but live in the Bible.” I am going to “live in” these two verses for a little while. I hope you will join me and be encouraged and strengthened. Go ahead and read Proverbs 3:5-6 and keep an eye out for part 1: Trust.
