Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on February 9, 2014 · Posted in Wisdom, Worship

Worship and desire.

 

What does your heart desire? 

You will worship the one who blesses you.

 

What does your heart desire?

Wisdom is a blessing from God.

 

What does your heart desire?

Nothing you desire can compare with wisdom.

 

What does your heart desire?

You cannot worship God and money.

 

What does your heart desire?

Precious gems, silver and gold are not worthy of a heart won by Christ.

 

What does your heart desire?

Nothing you desire can equal the wisdom of God.

If you do not desire God’s blessings, your worship will be corrupt and polluted.

 

What blessing does your heart desire?

Pray for courage to treasure the blessing of wisdom. 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

What does your heart desire?

 

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,

 

for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.

 

She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.

Proverbs 3:13-15
