Proverbs 3:5-7 NIV
In the Right Relationship, Msg. 4

Proverbs is the third division of the Hebrew Bible. The author is said to be King Solomon, the son of David. The last two chapters of the book are credited to be written by Agur, an Arabian sage, and King Lemuel. However, some scholars believe Lemuel was not a real person, but a symbol of King Solomon. Solomon spoke 3,000 proverbs. This is the wisdom book which is known for its brevity. It bestows well-being. In Proverbs, King Solomon instructs his son not to forget his teachings, but to keep his commandments in his heart that they will bring many years to his life and bring peace and prosperity.

Proverbs teaches us that we do not do anything without the help of God. God is at the helm of all that happens. We must always have Him in front of us; We must keep Him in view. God makes our paths straight because man/woman cannot direct his/her own path in things temporal or spiritual. Only God can do this. We must not carry a vain spirit or conceit. Seek Help from God. Revere Him. Acknowledge God. Trust and fear Him. It’s not about you or about me. All praise belongs to God.
