  2. 2. 2 Proverbs 12:7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. Psalm 37 1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Those who follow their own way may gain success for a time, but in the end they lose it all.
  3. 3. 3 Psalm 37 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. God’s Blessings One who trusts the Lord does everything His Way. And he delights himself in God’s Way. Total Commitment!
  4. 4. 4 Are you committed to serving the Lord? Are you a faithful servant of the Lord God? Deuteronomy 7 9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, the faithful God, Which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His Commandments to a thousand generations; Our God is worthy to be served – no matter what it costs.
  5. 5. 5 8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised. (TLB) 8 Everyone admires a man with good sense, but a man with a warped mind is despised. A warped mind refuses to think straight. Rejects Resists Rebels Receives Submits Obeys
  6. 6. 6 9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoreth himself, and lacketh bread. (TLB) 9 It is better to get your hands dirty -- and eat, than to be too proud to work -- and starve. All honest work is honorable. We can’t all be But we can all be productive and earn a living for our family. We can build a reputation for being a dependable, smart, hard worker, and advance to better jobs.

Be willing to do any task, and do it well. Control your temper in all situations, and be submissive to all authority. You can rebuild your reputation. Be early to work each day.
  8. 8. 8 10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. A very wicked man is cruel to animals. He even thinks it is funny. A good man is kind, gentle, merciful -- Even to animals.
  9. 9. 9 11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding. Work hard Work willingly Work smart Keep Learning It will pay off in time.
  10. 10. 10 12 The wicked desireth the net (what is caught in the net) of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit. Sinners see other sinners prosper and are envious. But that prosperity is short-lived; it is at best in this life only. The righteous are like a plant whose root reaches down to everlasting water and flourishes.
  11. 11. 11 Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the Law of the LORD; and in His Law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Let each of us be that man, starting right now.
  12. 12. 12 Psalm 1 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. If you are a Christian, BE a Christian.
