“My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.”
-The scripture provides fatherly advice on how to gain favor and high esteem before God and men. This can be achieved by the marination of mercy and truth with the love of Christ. It is a synthesis which originates from Christ who is the way, the truth and the life; for He showed us mercy through His sacrifice on the cross for the sake of all mankind, and continues to direct our paths. By taking heed to Gods’ commandments we find long life and peace; for sin brings about death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Him. We know that we have been created in the image and likeness of God; though no one is perfect. God forms and moulds us daily through His word so that we may follow His instructions and become Christ-like. For this reason; He gave us these commandments and calls us to rely on His wisdom and not our own through faith in Him. We are also called to acknowledge God our Creator in all things for He is the author of all things and knows our end from the beginning. Through Christs’ righteousness we are drawn closer to God as He draws near us. We are therefore called to depart from evil and fear God always by uphold His love; for this is the whole duty of man.
We thank You Lord our Father for this far that You have brought us. Your love Jehovah satisfies our souls; we bless Your name. Grant us wisdom and love Father that we may fear You always and take heed to Your word. May Your mercy and truth dwell in our hearts, that we may gain favor before You Lord and before men; forever. Be with our families, friends, leaders and the whole nation; and enable us to follow Your instructions; so that peace and prosperity may dwell in our land. It is good to give thanks to You Lord, to sing praises to Your name O Most High, to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and Your faithfulness every night, we praise Your name Jesus; forever and ever. Amen
