12-06-2023 Sirach 1 V2730 Watch lips yours hypocrite
The Book of Sirach Ch One v- 27 thru 30
27 For the fear of the Lord is wisdom and discipline; faithfulness and humility are his delight. 28 Do not disobey the fear of the Lord, do not approach it with duplicity of heart. 29 Do not be a hypocrite before others; over your lips keep watch. 30 Do not exalt yourself lest you fall and bring dishonor upon yourself; For then the Lord will reveal your secrets.
Be not a hypocrite for the Lord sees the fear you disregard of Him. Do not approach Him with duplicity of heart. For fear of the Lord is wisdom and discipline; faithfulness and humility are His delight. This passage today emphasizes the importance of being genuine and sincere in our relationship with the Lord. Our God advises us against hypocrisy and warns that the Lord sees through any fear or reverence we may disregard. Instead, it encourages us to approach the Lord with an honest and undivided heart. It also highlights that the fear of the Lord is a source of wisdom and discipline in our lives.
I must admit that sometimes it takes a long time to find this discipline and sometimes it may seem too late to a family member, friend or foe. Some may not be able to believe in the Lord’s forgiveness so therefore ignores Redemption as something they can’t comprehend or understand. But nt matter the reception no matter the way one will regard you now we must be fully surrendered to this model of Salvation placing truth and goodwill as the center of our lives. We must teach this to our children even though they may disagree or blow you off we must be steadfast in our prayers and share the Gospel as the only way to enter Heaven for all Eternity. The only way to overcome depression and dismay; Jesus Christ! Amen.
My 25-year-old son Jeffrey is struggling with this absolute surrender. He is spending a couple of days here with us at our home and he needs some good spiritual counseling. I am trying my hardest to make him see that placing God First will change his life forever. Not 20 years from now like I did at the age 45 but here and now. Please pray for his guidance that he sees the truth of Redemption as the only way to live in harmony with God and see Life Eternal. May our God capture his soul and give him peace. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.
At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.
I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Watch lips yours hypocrite**
Discipline and wisdom is Lord’s fear
Delight his in humility and faithfulness
Lord’s fear disobeys not to be queer
Heart of duplicity approach her not to confess
Watch lips yours hypocrite be not
Yourself exalt not fall you in dishonor
Secrets reveal for the Lord’s spot
For they will call you a goner
