My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. — Proverbs 4:20-22
In Proverbs we are admonished regarding the words of the Father. Whenever I hear the phrases pay attention and listen closely, I believe that the next thing said is going to be important. Do you notice that we are not instructed to pay attention to CNN or listen closely to the most popular talk show?
We are specifically instructed to pay attention to what He Says and listen closely to His Words.
Proverbs goes on to remind us that His Words should remain in our sight and be kept within our hearts. Why? Because His Words are life and health to those who pay attention and listen closely.
Are His Words important to you?
