Proverbs 23:12,23

Apply your mind to instruction.

Work at it.

Acquire wisdom, instruction, and understanding.

These are worthy pursuits via God’s path. Think of all the worthless pursuits we engage in day after day that amount to nothing but distraction from what is truly meaningful.

Luke 10:2

“There’s a great harvest out there,” He said to them, “but there aren’t many workers. So plead with the harvest-master to send out workers for the harvest.”

One of the very few places in Scripture where there is instruction given to pray for a specific thing that is named.

Tho we are to pray specifically I believe, we are rarely told in the Bible what exactly to pray for. All that to say, this is very important and worthy of our full attention.

Luke 10:25-37

The second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as much as we love ourself.

Who is a good neighbor?

The one who shows mercy is a good neighbor.

This is straight from the top.

Whoever you come into contact with who you can do good to is your neighbor. Whoever is in need in your path that you don’t have time for is your neighbor.

Let’s not be that person who does not help someone because we have to get to church, or we might be late to Bible study.

Luke 10:41-42

This is one of the pinnacle passages in all of Scripture in my opinion. Think of all that this encompasses and says to us:

“You are worried and distracted by many things when there is need of only one thing-TO LISTEN TO ME.”
