Christianity is a monotheistic religion centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. Its followers, known as Christians, believe that Jesus is the son of God and the Messiah (or Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament, the part of their scriptures they have in common with Judaism.

The walk we take is in the way of righteousness, a way that each of God's children chose when we accepted the very special gift of salvation and spiritual birth from our Lord. These ways of righteousness are the teachings and wisdom of the Bible which we learn through study, with the help of the Holy Spirit.
What is the source of temptation? We know that it is not God for God does not tempt us. We have clear evidence that Satan is involved in temptation.
You would think that when we find Jesus and are exposed to His teachings, that we would immediately stop whatever we are doing and follow Him.
God provides complete and clear evidence of his power, deity and creative powers. When you look at the beauty of a flower, you may ask the question; how did this get here. Or when you experience the love of a pet, it might occur to you that your pet did not simply evolve from some pool of slime, that he/she is part of God's creation.
There are times when sin is glorified, e.g., in movies, books and even in our own real world observations. It appears that some people get away with it. Don't fool yourself. No one knows the full story of another.
There are types of men who wash themselves in their own righteousness, who think of themselves as being better than the rest of society but are continually taking advantage of the poor and needy.
here are many who speak before they think. They rush to judgment or simply believe they have everything so well thought out that everyone else is clearly wrong. Solomon teaches in today's Proverb that fools are generally people who cannot keep their mouths shut. They act and speak before it is necessary and they usually end up making serious mistakes.
This is not a game. Do not ask for forgiveness and then say to yourself, well I have wiped the slate clean and therefore I can go back and sin again. Remember, you are dealing with God Almighty. He is a loving Father not a God you can toy with, but a compassionate and loving God to those who really come to Him with a contrite heart.
God desires genuine praise, praise given out of love for Him, but He does not like flattery. Today's Proverb deals with loud flattery given to a friend in the presence of others with some ulterior motive in mind.
Young people who believe they are going to live forever have little regard for the value of time given to us by our Lord in a 24 hour day. Indeed, they just as well sleep away the morning, if possible, especially after spending time with heavy drinkers and gluttons.
