Proverbs 17 1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness
therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with
1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NIV) Make it your ambition
to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and
to work with your hands, just as we told you,
Peace and happiness comes from the Lord;
Living life His Way.
3 John 1 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that
thou mayest prosper (enjoy good success) and be in
health, even as thy soul prospereth.
This is what God wants for His children.
Good success for the soul is the first priority here.
If the soul doesn’t do well, nothing else matters.
A barren soul makes
a barren life.
Psalm 103 1 Bless the
LORD, O my soul: and all
that is within me bless
His Holy Name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and
forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine
iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who
redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth
thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that
thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
(TLB) 1 A dry crust eaten in peace is better than
steak every day along with argument and strife.
A home and family
that lives in harmony
and love is to be
desired above any
amount of wealth.
Proverbs 21 9 It is better to
dwell in a corner of the
housetop, than with a
brawling woman in a wide
Fussing, cussing, railing, and flailing is almost
always a two-way street.
Husbands and wives must learn to live peaceably.
Refuse to escalate!
The Peace of God is the fruit of His Holy Spirit.
He will produce peace in us as we submit fully and
gladly to His Word and His Spirit.
Yet, so many seem to work so hard to destroy their
own peace of mind by pursuing sin.
1 Corinthians 13:5 (TLB) … Love does not
demand its own way. …
Live a life of love and enjoy peace.
1 Peter 2:11 (TLB) Dear brothers, you are only
visitors here. Since your real home is in Heaven, I
beg you to keep away from the evil pleasures of
this world; they are not for you, for they fight
against your very souls.
The pleasures of this world
are soul destroyers, stealing
our peace and our joy.
2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that
causeth shame, and shall have part of the
inheritance among the brethren.
Many times an employee who is faithful and listens
to good wisdom is preferred
Over a child who is unruly and won’t listen.
That is as it should be!
3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for
gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.
As silver and... gold are purified under intense
heat, so a believer’s heart is purified by the heat of
trials which the LORD brings.
The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty.
James 1:2-3 (NIV) Consider it pure joy, my
brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
1 Peter 1:6-7 (NIV) In this you greatly rejoice,
though now for a little while you may have had to
suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come
so that your faith -- of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire -- may
be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory
and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
Genuine faith is proven
through faithful obedience
in difficult times of trials.
4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar
giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
Flatterers, especially false teachers, are welcome to
those that live in sin.
Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary.
Sinners and backsliders love to
listen to those who will tell them
what they want to hear.
