01-15-2024 Sirach 9 V1416 Wise associate with eternally




The Book of Sirach Ch Nine v- 14 and 16

14 As best you can, answer your neighbor, and associate with the wise. 15 With the learned exchange ideas; and let all your conversation be about the law of the Most High. 16 Take the righteous for your table companions; and let your glory be in the fear of God.


The Law of the Lord can be your guide by following its principles and teachings in your daily life. Here are some ways to make it your guide. First and foremost we must study and understand the scriptures.  You should regularly read and study the holy texts of your faith to gain knowledge of the Law of the Lord. Reflect on its teachings and seek guidance from it by living God First in every step you take. Take time to contemplate and reflect on the principles and values outlined in the Law of the Lord. Through prayer, seek guidance and understanding in applying these teachings to your life.


Seek the wise and reflect with them on the Law of the Lord. Surround yourself with individuals who are knowledgeable in the Law of the Lord and demonstrate wisdom in their actions. Seek their advice and guidance when faced with challenges or decisions.

Participate actively in a community that shares your beliefs and values. Engage in religious services, study groups, or fellowship activities where you can learn from and be inspired by others who follow the Law of the Lord. Then practice righteousness. Strive to live a righteous life by aligning your actions and behaviors with the teachings of the Law of the Lord. Act with integrity, kindness, compassion, and justice in all your interactions with others learning to give until it hurts or listen as love is heard.


Regularly reflect on your own experiences and evaluate how well you are adhering to the principles of the Law of the Lord. Learn from your successes and failures, and make necessary adjustments to your actions and behaviors. Seek opportunities to deepen your understanding of the Law of the Lord through further study, attending religious conferences or lectures, and engaging in discussions with others who are also seeking to follow the same path. By associating with wise and righteous individuals who also strive to follow the Law of the Lord, you can gain valuable insights, support, inspiration and encouragement on your spiritual journey. Their wisdom and righteousness can serve as examples for you to emulate and guide you in living according to the principles of the Law of the Lord. You too will become this person on faith for as you age you will become the elder the leader of love, faith and hope of your wisdom’s training in Christ. Today I share a Haiku about the Law of the Lord and its wisdom of goodwill. Amen.


A Haiku on the Law of Wisdom


Law of Lord guides way,

Wisdom flows in its embrace,

Goodwill blooms each day.




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.

**Wise associate with eternally**


Neighbor answer with truth

Wise associate with eternally

Ideas exchange as proof

Law His converse paternally


Let the righteous be your friend

Companions at table forever

Glory yours be His kin

God’s fear live to discover
