“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Sirach 2:1-6

 

TODAY’S WORD…

.

My child, if you are going to serve the Lord,

be prepared for times when you will be put to the test.

Be sincere and determined.

Keep calm when trouble comes.

.

Stay with the Lord;

never abandon Him,

and you will be prosperous at the end of your days.

.

Accept whatever happens to you.

Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient.

.

Gold is tested by fire,

and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation.

.

Trust the Lord, and He will help you.

Walk straight in His ways,

and put your Hope in Him.

.
