Proverbs 4:20-22 (ESV)

20 My son, be attentive to my words;

incline your ear to my sayings.

21 Let them not escape from your sight;

keep them within your heart.

22 For they are life to those who find them,

and healing to all their flesh.

The father exhorts his son to pay attention to his teaching. The son must continually pursue the way of wisdom, reading over and obeying the commands of the Lord.This will require a lifetime of saying “no” to the desires of the sinful flesh and the pull of the world while actively walking along the path of the wise. But the reward will be great. We must all be healed from sin and its effects in our lives. It is through the supernatural work of the Lord that we are given new hearts and rewired to walk in his ways. Often the world around us tries to heal moral failure with medication or therapy, which may provide a temporary Band-Aid, but never really get to the cancer under the skin.Align your desires with the will of Jesus today. His Spirit will refresh your soul in a way no other person or thing can.
