Do you hear and heed God's Word?


β€œFor the turning away of the simple shall slay them and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoever listens to me shall dwell in safety and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:32-33

Turning away from the wisdom revealed in God’s Word β€” even if some who do so prosper for a time in this world β€” leads to death and destruction. But those who hear and heed God’s Word, repenting of sin and evil and looking in faith to the LORD God for mercy, shall dwell in safety and be at ease in the face of evil.

Grant that I hear and heed Your Word, O God, repent of my sinful ways and look to You for mercy in the wounds of Your Son and my Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
