A Life God Blesses

Bible Text: Proverbs 4:20-27 |

We are pretty confident that every one of us would say we long to experience God's blessing in our lives. Who wouldn't want to experience his favour?! Who wouldn't want all the good things God has to offer?!
The great news is that God wants that for us as well. He really does! He wants to bless us in more ways and to a greater degree than we could ever imagine. He's a good Father who loves to give good gifts to his children. His heart is for us and toward us.

And here's the thing: We're part of the equation too. There are things we can do that help to unleash God's blessing in our lives, and there are things we can do that block his blessing. Not in a way that forces God's hand—he's not obligated to anyone for anything—but in a way that he himself outlines throughout the Scriptures.

So the question for each of us is: What can I do—or not do—so that God will want to show his favour? How can I have a life God blesses? We're turning to the wisdom of Solomon for the answers.
