"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments." — Proverbs 3:1 How much do we take it for granted that the night will end and there will be another tomorrow? Do we ever doubt that spring will come on the heels of winter and linger awhile? We know these things about our world, so we have no doubts. As we watch pur world by the picture window of li do we also forget sometimes how all things are possible? Do we ever thank God for all the good things that we take so much for granted? Do we ever remind ourselves that real security is something that lasts forever? We have no fear that God will desert us. Let us not desert God.
