Jesus is Peaceful and Pleasant

Daniel Castor

If this doesn't make you want to walk in wisdom I don't know what will. We are all people who long for a peaceful and pleasant life. Have you even noticed how some people tend to live in a reoccurring depression? They walk in foolish ways, never turning from their sin. They don't have the peace and pleasant life that this verse speak of. They are miserable. They look at the their situations and say "why do terrible things keep happening to me?" and... "Why can't I find any joy or happiness?". Then they go on living the same way they have been. A man with wisdom from God will be kept from this kind of life. though he will fail and he will fall. Wisdom from God will let him clearly see the problem and turn from it. As a matter of fact this is how the gospel works. We see that sin always leads to misery! And the only area we may find joy and peace and a pleasant life is in the saving work of Jesus Christ on the Cross!
