Daily Lectionary Readings for Year B
Proverbs 3:1-12 is wise counsel for any time of the year, but especially at the start of a new year. The proverb advises us to keep God's commandments, writing them on our hearts. It advises us to trust in God and to not rely on ourselves, but to rely completely on God.
This proverb reminds me of the Covenant Service written by John Wesley. It helps to mindfully and seriously commit to following God with our whole selves. I read some of it in worship yesterday, when I was regular size. I will attach the covenant service so you can spend time with it, pray over it, and commit to it. May God bless you this new year.
