Long Life

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 16, 2012

“Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.” Proverbs 4:10

Long life is not guaranteed for anyone. We have no promise of tomorrow and each day is a gift from God. However, as a whole, pure living can prolong life. There are accidents, and unfortunate illnesses that can strike suddenly and snatch life from a vibrant soul, but wise living is still a road to long life. A fool eats, drinks and is merry as if there is no tomorrow, while wisdom plans and prepares for the return of Christ at any moment.

Wisdom focuses on godly living, while godless living is the focus of fools. It may seem like the disobedient are getting away with something, as some frolic into their frail years, but judgment is coming, not to mention the harmful consequences in this life. Therefore, listen to wisdom and obey its precepts, positioning yourself to live a long and full life.

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—“so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Ephesians 6:1-3

Furthermore, romance wisdom with your emotions and affections. True lovers of wisdom embrace and exalt the beauty she brings to a life. You are attractive when you chose to live wisely under the authority of Almighty God. Your family, friends and work associates are drawn to your wise decisions saturated in prayer, collaborated with experts, and based on the principles of God’s Word.

Concur with Christ on the truth of His Word and He will bless you. Wisdom is the primary principle, because it puts you on the path of life. Therefore, follow the Lord, and in His infinite wisdom, He will direct your steps and determine your length of days on earth, with eternal life to come. Obedience to Christ’s commands leads you into wise living that is truly life.

“And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17, NASB

Where can I find wisdom and gain it for the glory of God?

  3. I’m the proprietor of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently seeking to grow my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the very best way to do this would be to talk to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if someone could recommend a trusted web site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am presently considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
