“Keep, Bind, Say”

“Keep, Bind, Say”

Blessings folk!

More about the “treasure” of the Lord…

Pro 7:1-5

My son, keep my words
And treasure my commandments within you.

Keep my commandments and live,
And my teaching as the apple of your eye.

Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.

Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
And call understanding your intimate friend;

That they may keep you from an adulteress,
From the foreigner who flatters with her words.

We are to…

  • Keep His Words
  • Treasure His commandments…within us
  • Keep His commandments…and live
  • Keep His teaching…as the “apple of our eye”…the focus of all things
  • Bind His Word on our fingers
  • Write His Word on our heart
  • Embrace wisdom
  • Be intimate with understanding

This will keep us from the adulteress…the temptation that draw us from the Lord.
This will protect us from the flatterer.

Now, simple question.

Are we doing this with the Word of the Lord?
