From Russell Pruitt

I received this today from Russell Pruitt, missionary to Montana. It convicted and challenged my heart and I pray it will do the same for you. Thank you Bro. Russell for allowing me to use this!

Hi Bro. Tony
I was doing my devotions this morning when you came to my mine.
Pro. Chpt. 18

I) Help me not to have a Fool's lip: v. 6-8 (stupid or silly) Jam. 1:19

II) Help me not to be a Failure: v. 9-10 (slothful) slackared, lazy
our strength is in the LORD!

III) Help me to have Freedom from pride: v. 11-16 (humility) Jam. 4:6 & 10; I Pet. 5:6
That Christ will get the Glory!!

IV) Help me to put others First: v. 17-21 Watch my tongue, it's hard to win them back. Jam. 3:5-12

V) Help me to always have Favor with The Lord: v. 22-23 Favor: delight
a. stay in peace w/our wife. v.22
b. stay in earnest prayer. v.23

VI) Help me to be Friendly: v. 24 That I may have friends and that I may win them to the LORD!!
Luke 11:5-10

God was working on my heart about all these things in our deputation. I had to ask myself, have I done these things? Yes on some and on the others, I needed to repent. Bro. I hated to say, but I feel like I am guilty of them all. Please pray that I will stay on track, and focus on the LORD.

Love in Christ,

Russell Pruitt
