Daily Meeting Place
Approaching God with Care
Today's Passage: Ecclesiastes 5:1-7
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.
Read and summarize each verse into as few
words as you can. Goal 1 or 2 words.
1. As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut. It is is evil to make mindless offerings to God.
2. Don't make rash promises, and don't be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven and you are here on earth. So let your words be few.
3. Too much ativity gives you restless dreams; to many words makes you a fool.
4. When you make a promise to God, don't delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him.
5. It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it.
6. Don't let your mouth make you sin. and don't defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved.
7. Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead.
Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 NLT
