When a sincere request is made on behalf of others God shows mercy so always ask Him.

Read: Amos 7:2-6 

In my vision the locusts ate every green plant in sight. Then I said, “O Sovereign Lord, please forgive us or we will not survive, for Israel[a] is so small.”

3 So the Lord relented from this plan. “I will not do it,” he said.

4 Then the Sovereign Lord showed me another vision. I saw him preparing to punish his people with a great fire. The fire had burned up the depths of the sea and was devouring the entire land.5 Then I said, “O Sovereign Lord, please stop or we will not survive, for Israel is so small.”

6 Then the Lord relented from this plan, too. “I will not do that either,” said the Sovereign Lord.

It is wise and necessary to discipline your children.

To discipline a child produces wisdom,

    and will make your heart glad.

Get God involved in everything you do!  

Read: Psalms 127:1 

Unless the Lord builds a house,

   guarding it with sentries will do no good.

Be Careful

When someone is going astray carefully reach out with caution and help them turn around.

Read: Jude 1:22-23

22 And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. 23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.

Stick With Truth

Stay away from idols, fortune tellers and false teachers. Stick with what you know is truth so you won’t stumble and fall.

Read: Hosea 14:8-9 

“O Israel, stay away from idols!

   I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you.

I am like a tree that is always green;

   all your fruit comes from me.”

9 Let those who are wise understand these things.

   Let those with discernment listen carefully.

The paths of the Lord are true and right,

   and righteous people live by walking in them.

   But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.
