Guard the Lessons

437612785_12801Hold on to instruction; don’t let go. Guard it, for it is your life. (Proverbs 4:13)

We must grasp and hold onto God’s words, not just bump into them or be familiar with them. God’s Word has power even with the slightest contact, but co-ownership requires more of us.

We need to guard what God is cultivating within us, not to be stubborn, because a open invitation for Him to change us is essential, but to be attentive. He’s willing to work in our lives. We can respond with a willingness to listen, learn, and live well.
