Lesson 6: May 5-11

‘Lean not unto thine own understanding’


5. What is it our natural instinct to rely on?  Proverbs 3:5, last part.

NOTE:  ‘If they entertain humble views of self, and rely fully upon the promises of God, He will never fail them. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” We have the privilege of being directed by a wise Counsellor.’ Gospel Workers, page 79.


6. As well as relying on God and trusting in His Word, what conditions must we meet?  Proverbs 3:7, last part.

NOTE: ‘Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The words of wisdom “are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” True religion brings man into harmony with the laws of God, physical, mental, and moral. It teaches self-control, serenity, temperance. Religion ennobles the mind, refines the taste, and sanctifies the judgement. It makes the soul a partaker of the purity of heaven. Faith in God’s love and overruling providence lightens the burdens of anxiety and care. It fills the heart with joy and contentment in the highest or the lowliest lot. Religion tends directly to promote health, to lengthen life, and to heighten our enjoyment of all its blessings. It opens to the soul a never-failing fountain of happiness. Would that all who have not chosen Christ

might realise that He has something vastly better to offer them than they are seeking for themselves.’ Christian Education, page 67.
