Proverbs 3:4 (VOICE) In this way, you will win the favor of God and others, and they will think well of you.
Beloved, when you become known as a person of mercy and compassion, people are drawn to you. A person like that feels safe and trustworthy. A person like that reflects My love. Choose to be that kind of person.
As you seek to reflect Me, resist the urge to do so simply for the favor and blessing that accompany that kind of life. Rather do it because it’s the right thing to do. It’s right for mercy to triumph over judgment. It’s right for love to triumph over hate. So cloak yourself in character that mirrors Mine, and do so from a heart of love.
Proverbs 3:1-4 (VOICE) My son, always remember what I have taught you; keep my instructions dear to your heart. If you do, they will be your guide to a long, healthy, prosperous life. Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth; engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck; meditate on them so they are written upon your heart. In this way, you will win the favor of God and others, and they will think well of you.
