Young children are eager to please. In fact, while parents may not always feel that way, it is true that the biggest smiles come to the faces of 3 or 4 year olds when they know that their efforts have satisfied a significant adult. The truth is we all respond to praise. Hearing the words, “nice job”, “good work”, spurs us on with energy and increased effort. “Lord, I really do want to do what pleases You. Help me this day to live out what You so clearly have said in Your Word.”
Want to know “what pleases the Lord”? Plan on joining us this fall as we study themes that are found in the Book of Proverbs – “A Word to the Wise” – starting, Friday, September 21.
