Word of Wisdom

Proverbs 20:12-13 God has given us the ability to discover how to live an abundant life!

Administrator 0 54 Article rating: 5.0

There are many voices in the world vying for our attention. God has given us the abilty to find the one voice that will feed our soul and enable us to live an abundant life.  In order to posess this wonderful blessing, we have to expend some effort.  Read your Bible and ask God to speak to you!  He has promised that "If you learn from me, you will find rest for your soul" (Matthew 11:29).  "Bread" (in verse 13) represents everything we need for sucess, wisdom, peace, joy and power.  You cannot have the blessing if you are lazy (sleeping instead of seeking )!

Proverbs 28:2 - Immorality in a nation threatens its prosperity and invites corruption . Only wise leadership will bring stability.

When America decided to take prayer out of schools, it started a process of decay that has led to corruption throughout our government. This is exactly what this verse predicts! The only way back is wise leadership that will root out corruption and reestablish law and order. We MUST pray FOR our leaders, and that corruption is exposed and dealt with justly. What an amazing Proverb this is!

Proverbs 16:25-26 Your labor will produce sorrow or life, it's your choice!

Administrator 0 176 Article rating: 5.0

There is nothing wrong with hard work.  Being industrious is a virtue that typically produces many benefits.  Labor, as it is used here is something completely different.  The Hebrew term used here implies sorrowful or wicked labor.  The best way to understand this is to examine the behavior of the 5,000 people that Jesus fed in John chapter 6.

 After this miracle, the people "labored" to find Jesus, even to the point of crossing a sea to another country!   Note carefully what Jesus said to them, 
"...you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.  Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life..." -
John 6:26-27 

In other words, what you labor FOR determines if your work will ultimately produce fulfilling and lasting results.  If your goal is to pursue wealth for the sake of comfort and the pleasures of life, sorrow is in your future.   The question we need to ask ourselves is, what do we work for and why?  There is a reason that there is something called a "rat race".

Proverbs 1:20-33 If we refuse to regard God's voice, our cry for help in times of trouble will not be regarded

Why does the book of Proverbs exist?  Simply put, God loves you and He wants to keep your butt out of trouble!  God did not start with Proverbs, He started by creating a universe that "speaks" to us (Psalms 19:1-3).  His glory and His voice are on display for all to see and hear!  Everywhere we go, God is speaking.  This  passage reveals the extent to which God has gone to "speak" to us.  He is constantly crying out.  If we refuse to stop, listen and consider His voice, our butts will not be delivered!  When distress, anguish and worse come our way and we pray for help, He will not answer!  The good news is that if we choose to regard His voice (Isaiah 55:6), He will respond and pour out His Spirit to us (Proverbs 1:23).

Proverbs 6:32-35 People who understand the deadly consequences of adultery, will not do it!

Administrator 0 250 Article rating: No rating

Modern American culture has attempted to normalize adultery.  The goal is to minimize the stigma and consequences of the behavior.  This, however, will never happen.  A covenant breaker is a covenant breaker.  A cheater is a cheater.  A liar is a liar.  Words, philosophy, and feelings will never dismiss the reproach, dishonor, emotional injury, and desire for revenge  that are irrevocably attached to this behavior.  This proverb also carries a deeper message,  God is telling us how he feels and what He will do when we cheat on Him!  If we truly understood the consequences of adultery, we would NEVER do it!  Selah..
