FOLLOW YOUR FATHER’S ADVICE

Devotional for December 7, 2021


Morning Proverbs 2:1-9

Noon Psalms 125

Noon Proverbs 2:10-21


Man was made by God in His image and likeness, and different from animals. We were created to relate and have communion with our Maker; therefore, the eternal Father wants us to recognize Him and respond to His infinite love. Whoever does not accept God's paternity over their life will never accept his ordinances. In the natural life of a human being, the lack of a father results in emotional instability. In our spiritual life, the lack of the eternal Father brings consequently moral instability. One does not know how to define what is truly good and what is bad, and consequently, one falls into society’s trap which calls the good “bad” and the bad “good”, and thus leads a false life that will crumble at any moment. It is essential to follow the advice of our heavenly Father and live according to his precepts. If it is wise to follow the instructions of our earthly parents, as Solomon said, how much more will it be favorable to hear the voice of Him in whom is all wisdom and knowledge! Our parents may be wrong, but never will our heavenly Father be.


My son, don't forget my law!


Sabbath School Book

Morning Proverbs 2:1-9

1My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you,

2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding;

3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding,

4 If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures;

5 Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God.

6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;

8 He guards the paths of justice and preserves the way of His saints.

9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.



Noon Psalms 125

1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.


Noon Proverbs 2:10-21

10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

15 Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
