Turn

proverbs wisdomFrom Ray Ortlund’s Proverbs: Wisdom That Works

“If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.” (Proverbs 1:23) The Lord is saying, “Sometimes I’ll disagree with you, I’ll correct you, I’ll rebuke you. I don’t work with perfect people. I work with responsive people. Here is the response I’m looking for: turn.” That word “turn” is the most important word in the bible for repentance. It is not a sentimental word. It is a decisive word.
