Reading: Proverbs 2:1-7
[1] My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, [2] turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— [3] indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, [4] and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, [5] then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. [6] For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. [7] He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,

Thought for Reflection: What is most important to us? God promises that if we seek him and his kingdom above all else we will find the greatest treasure of all! There are thousands of competing voices calling us today – God is a shield and will keep us as we look to him.

Prayer: Lord, help us to search for you today in all the details of the day and to find your wisdom and guidance at the heart of our lives.
