proverbs 3:5-6

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
don't sulk under his loving correction.
It's the child he loves that God corrects;
a father's delight is behind all this.

this is from the message, I don't usually read it but, I think that sometimes it gives me a fresh way of hearing the good news!

This version makes me think about what's said and not just recite it. Very thought provoking. "Run to God! Run from evil!", wonderful.

"Run to God! Run from evil!"

I totally agree Shane, it made me stop and think as well!
