The Bible is the guideline for life. It is God's Word.
It tells of men and their consequences due to sin. It tells
men who were heavily rewarded

Commandments. We do this by obeying God with:
OUR HEART - By loving Him more than any relationship, activity,
achievement or possession.
OUR WILL - By committing ourselves completely to Him.
OUR MIND - By seeking to know Him and His Word, so His principles

OUR BODY - By recognizing that our strength, talents, and sexuality
are given to us by God to be used for pleasure and fulfillment
according to His rules, not ours.
OUR FINANCES - By deciding that all of the resources we have
ultimately come from God, and that we are to be managers of them
and not owners.
FUTURE - By deciding to make service to God and man the main
purpose of our life's work.

the tongue, knowing God, marriage, seeking the truth,
wealth and poverty, immorality, and wisdom.
of trying to read Proverbs in one sitting, read one chapter
a day for a month. There are 31 chapters. Study and apply
what God is saying to you daily.
