When my daughter, Sidney, turned 21, I wanted to give her some lasting wisdom. I wanted to give her something she could hold on to and remember. I’d like to think she’s already learned plenty of good things from me. But, for such a momentous birthday I was searching for a good bit of wisdom from the Bible to encourage her with and wow, did I find it!
I always love a good Proverb and as I was reading and studying, I came across this verse, “He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”
Yes! Pursue righteousness and love every day. Walk as Jesus directs you to. Life and prosperity and honor will come to you. You will be blessed. This is such a beautiful promise but an even cooler thing on Sidney’s 21st birthday…this verse is in the 21st chapter and is the 21st verse!
No matter your age, this verse is an incredible reminder to seek righteousness and love in all that you do.
“He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.” Proverbs 21:21
