Key Verse

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10).

Text — Proverbs 9:9-12


Guy Finley holds that, “Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over.” This also applies to the believer whose brilliant beginning is when he knows he is a sinner and turns to Christ for Salvation. Surely, salvation brings a new beginning. God’s word says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). With faith in Christ, God gives you a new relationship, citizenship, family, direction in life, destiny, power, and a brand-new life.

Beloved, let your brilliant spiritual beginning be marked by fear of and supreme loyalty to God. When urged to do wrong, answer like Peter and John, “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). Also, in your studies, if your performance has been poor, you can have a new beginning. Excellent performance awaits youths who plan well by faith and work diligently. If you have been having relationship challenges with your family members, look objectively at the situation, pray and reconcile with all involved.
