Sharing my thoughts and experiences as we explore the Book of Proverbs…..
The contrasting of wise and unwise choices is throughout the Book of Proverbs.
Change is a choice.
Once upon a time, I made unwise choices. (wink)
Until I chose differently. Praise The Lord.
Scripture references to verses:
And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five.
1 Kings 4:32
These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgement, and equity; yea, every good path.
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.
For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!
The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
