Proverbs 14:15 The
simple (seducible) believeth every word:
but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
The simple are easily influenced, especially
by manipulative people.
Whoever he is hanging out
with is who he emulates.
He is gullible; easily led astray.
The gullible need to be extra careful about the
company they keep.
The prudent person will study and think for
himself, listening only to the Lord.
16 A wise
man feareth, and departeth from evil: but
the fool rageth, and is confident.
It is Wisdom to fear the Lord as God Almighty.
Evil is whatever God says it is.
To fear the Lord is to do all things His Way.
Only a raging fool thinks he
can defy God and get by.
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly:
James 1 19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let
every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to
wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the
righteousness of God.
Proverbs 16 32 He that is slow to anger is better
than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he
that taketh a city.
A bad temper is nothing to be proud of.
We need self-control in the Power of God.
It makes him feel powerful
to scare women.
He feeds on the fear that
he can create in others.
But he’s a fool.
Romans 12 19 … Vengeance is mine; I will
repay, saith the Lord.
God will wreak vengeance on such a man.
and a man of wicked
devices (evil plans;
schemes) is hated.
Instead of being hot-tempered,
this man is coldly calculating.
His schemes make money
only for him.
He cheated millions of people out of
their life’s savings.
He’s a hated man and a fool.
simple inherit folly: but the prudent are
crowned with knowledge.
Foolishness begets more foolishness.
The simple buy into schemes designed to sound
like easy money, but in reality are a trap.
Wisdom begets ever more Wisdom.
evil bow before the good; and the wicked at
the gates of the righteous.
In the short term it may seem that the evil and
wicked are doing much better than the righteous.
But judgment is coming!
