Daily Bible Reading Day 88: Proverbs 16
There is a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. In this fallen world, we compare ourselves to others and we try to live our lives on our own accord. When things are not going well, we remember to look to God for direction. After things get better, we begin to live again without God. The will of God will never be fulfilled in out lives, if we live like this. God wants us to commit our ways to Him in everything we do. God gives us direction and then we can set our plan in motion.
Pride and dishonesty will destroy your life. Be humble. Be honest. Even if you look bad for a moment. It is better than living a lie.
Social media makes people’s lives seem so wonderful and perfect. The endless search for approval and “likes” end up causing depression and being ingrateful. Our approval should come from God and not others.
Youth is more appreciated than getting older. Getting older comes maturity. Many cover their gray hairs because society disregards them when the gray shows. It with age comes wisdom. Youth and looks are fleeting. Chasing youth will have you running around in circles. Instead, chase after the ever lasting life!

Anger destroys relationships. Righteous anger is only valid towards injustice and sin. Get involved only when you can effective produce positive change. If your motives are selfish or vindictive, nothing good will come of it.
God wants us to take care of the poor. It honors God when we help others less fortunate. Many people judge or look down upon people who are poor. You never know why someone may be in a bad situation. Instead of judging, help someone! If you help someone, you will not enable them to stay poor, you will give them hope!
