He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness and honor. (Proverbs 21:21)
What a most wonderful proverb! Full of the warmth of God's will and meat for the soul. It embraces all our difficulties and enlightens life's sometimes questionable paths with an enduring presence of Father God's love.
As Lamb of God continues to go through life's altering events; I'm persuaded that if we seek to follow righteousness and mercy; the outcome will be glorious. Take a look at this proverb. Righteousness and mercy will produce life, righteousness and honor. Righteousness is not enough; mercy must also be demonstrated. As the Holy Ghost brings the food of God's word to our soul, we will know how to feed others, our present circumstances and entanglements, all receiving God's parenting character. The quoting of the Scriptures are not what is needed; but the life in them. Food enhances our physical body with power to live life, so does the living of God's word enhance us with divine power to be called the children of God! Praise the Lord!
