My favorite proverb? Proverbs 3:5-6-NKJV:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
Why? Because our own understanding is not sufficient for successfully living in a sinful environment [earth]. In and of ourselves, we are not capable of directing our own steps (Jeremiah 10:23), therefore, we must align our thinking with God’s thinking (Isaiah 1:18) in order to successfully navigate this life and its many pitfalls.
