In our communities Sunday gathering last week, someone directed our attention to Proverbs 3:5-8 and we spent some time reflecting on some of the concepts in it. Having reflected a bit on it, couldn't help re-writing it according to the opposite - pretty close to how many of us often live, I reckon!
Trust in yourself and others with all your being,
and lean fully on your and their insight,
In all your ways acknowldge yourself and them,
And your paths will be very crooked.
Be very wise in your own eyes;
ignore the Lord, and embrace evil
It will be draining for your flesh,
and exhausting for your body.
Do look up the original - it's a much better way to live!
