RC week 3 devotional
The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” Proverbs 20:5
This Proverb reminds us that the study and understanding of peoples’ actions and purposes in life are both possible and of value. To help someone overcome a problem, we must know something about his or her motivation. The book of Proverbs provide several reasons why people act the way they do. When motivation is uncovered, a positive solution can be given to help hurting people.
