Pastor’s Letter – April 20, 2020 – Trust in the Lord.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

What an encouraging passage we have before us today. This chapter provides us with three My Son statements and at least ten commandments directed to the learner in the School of Wisdom. (I’ve only marked eight commandments. See if you can discover the other two. Maybe you’ll find more.)

There is so much in the chapter. We get an introduction to Lady Wisdom and the benefits of knowing her. Final comparisons end the chapter and teach us about discretion and good decisions.

I hope you enjoy the chapter, just as the Psalmist said, “I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad” (119:98). You find the outline for today’s chapter by following the link. Please download or view for further study.

Prayer Requests: Please pray for Rob Wilton and the city of Pittsburgh, PA.

Catechism: The Principles of the Christian Religion.

Question 81: What is the sixth commandment?

Answer: Thou Shalt not kill.

Question 82: What does this commandment require?

Answer: The preservation of the safety of men’s persons, with all means tending to the same.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”

All my best.

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken..

Proverbs 3:25-26
