I know God exists from divine intervention. Jesus is Lord.

1)Sept 2003: I was down Pittsburgh, and I heard a voice that said,"Good
News". It confused me, but I felt compeled to come home to my old church.
2)When I arrive home and held my dads hands inside the Church(he is grounds
keeper, and just so happened to be there), and profess to him and God my
love, he went up and brought me down a Bible, The Good News Bible.
3)I have never heard of this Bible before in my life, the "Good News" I was
spoken to is manifested in physical form.

I don't claim to be a prophet,but I fully know God exists as explained in
the bible.  If you read the bible, you'll find truth.  


If you still have time to read, I broke the book of Proverbs down into an
outline format.  Its good to get a lot of information fast, but I still
suggest you read the bible in full.

God is pleased when you live:
* Intelligently
* Honest
* Just-morally right. 
* Fair
* Righteous
* Loyally
* Faithfully
* Be mature
* Truthful
* Loving
* Good and resist sin-Innocent
* Modest
* Kind
* Generous
* Helping of others
* Humble

Proverbs give reasons why you want to be these things, but its simpler just
to be 
them and not worry about why.
 
Hard work is praised, but its the Lord's blessing that allows you wealth.

Sensible people accept good advice.
Good man's words are a fountain of life.
Don't speak scornfully of others.
The more you talk, the more likely you'll sin, so try to keep quiet.
Remain calm, and think things through before speaking or acting.
A gentle answer quiets anger, but a harsh one stirs it up.
Good people think before they answer.  Evil people have a quick reply, but
it causes trouble.
A wise, mature person is known for his understanding.  The more pleasant
his words, the more persuasive he is.
The start of an argument is like the first break in a dam; stop it before
it goes any further.
Give a silly answer to a silly question, and the one who asked it will
realize that he's not as smart as he thinks.
 

Get all the advice you can, and you will succeed; without it you will
fail.15:22
