The Book of Sirach Ch Three v- 26 thru 29
26 A stubborn heart will fare badly in the end; those who love danger will perish in it. 27 A stubborn heart will have many a hurt; adding sin to sin is madness. 28 When the proud are afflicted, there is no cure; for they are offshoots of an evil plant. 29 The mind of the wise appreciates proverbs, and the ear that listens to wisdom rejoices. 30 As water quenches a flaming fire, so almsgiving atones for sins. 31 The kindness people have done crosses their paths later on; should they stumble, they will find support.
A stubborn heart can lead to sin and danger because it prevents an individual from being open to correction, guidance, and growth. When someone has a stubborn heart, they refuse to acknowledge their mistakes or listen to the wisdom of others. This can lead to a disregard for moral principles and a sense of entitlement, which can ultimately result in engaging in sinful behavior.
You know a stubborn heart can blind a person from recognizing the consequences of their actions and the potential dangers they may face. They may become resistant to advice or warnings, believing that they are always right and invincible. This can lead to reckless decisions and behaviors that put themselves and others at risk. Your stubborn heart can prevent personal growth and moral development, leading to a path of sin and danger. It is important for individuals to be open to self-reflection, humility, and the guidance of others in order to avoid these negative consequences.
This is one of the reasons why I have a spiritual advisor to seek Him in ways I may need guidance to find. A spiritual advisor can provide guidance and support in matters related to spirituality, personal growth, and finding meaning and purpose in life. They help you see God, His Son and His Spirit as everything in life surrendering to this notion of goodwill lived in humility constantly. They can help individuals explore their beliefs, values, and practices, and offer insights on how to deepen their spiritual journey. This is what I do each and every day. I acknowledge God and His Dominion over everything I want to see as the Charity I live life to concede; Salvation the Redemption of my sins forever where peace results from a soul of wisdom not sin grace for Life Eternal. 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.

**Badly fare heart stubborn**
Badly fare heart stubborn
Danger love end near
Heart stubborn hurt lover
Madness is sin on sin dear
Afflicted are the proud
Cure none for them
Evil offshoots obviously loud
A plant of continuous sin
Wise mind proverbs welcomed
Listening ears rejoicing wisdom
Sins atoned fire flaming water quenched
Paths of kindness support found when stumbling quenched
