"Better is a little with the fear of the Lord,
than great treasure and turmoil with it.
Better is a dish of vegetables where love is
than a fattened ox served with hatred."
Proverbs 15:16 &17
These verses really struck me as ones that are appropriate for us to remember this week. Remember that even though treasure (nice gifts) are fun to receive or give, that if they come with turmoil it would be so much better to have a little instead and to focus on fearing the Lord. Also a fine feast can be really nice to enjoy or prepare (I think it is fun to make sure that things look pretty and nice) but if it brings about hatred or stress or anything like that - than don't you think it would be better to have something simple accompanied with love?
I hope you may have a blessed week and that it will be a time of love and following Jesus!
