Proverbs 19:2 Also, that the soul be without knowledge,
it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet
(NIV) 2 It is not good to have zeal without
knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.
Take time to pray, seeking to know God’s Will, and
asking for God’s help before you act.
It’s good to have enthusiasm, but be sure you know
what God would have you to do.
3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and
his heart fretteth against the LORD.
(NIV) 3 A man's own folly ruins his life, yet his
heart rages against the LORD.
Accept responsibility for your own life.
Don’t blame God or anyone else for the
troubles you bring upon yourself.
Live with deliberate obedience to God’s
Word in the Power of God’s Holy Spirit.
4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is
separated from his neighbor.
These are fair weather friends; never really
friends at all.
Once I lived the life of a millionaire, spendin' my
money I didn't care.
I carried my friends out for a good time, buying
bootleg liquor, champagne and wine.
When I begin to fall so low, I didn't have a friend
and no place to go …
Nobody knows you, when you down and out.
Jimmy Cox 1923
5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he
that speaketh lies shall not escape.
God is aware of all sin, and all who choose to
live in sin will reap the consequences.
6 Many will entreat the favor of the prince: and
every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
Be wary of all flattery; the flatterer
7 All the brethren of the poor (destitute) do hate
him: how much more do his friends go far from
him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are
wanting to him.
This is how it often is in this world;
not how it should be.
Leviticus 19:10 (NIV) Do not go over your
vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that
have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien.
I am the LORD your God.
Psalm 41 1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor:
the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
See the difference in the way the world views the
poor and the way God sees them.
God cares deeply for the needy, and blesses
His people who help those in need.
Help, but don’t enable a wicked lifestyle.
8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he
that keepeth understanding shall find good.
(TLB) 8 He who loves wisdom loves his own best
interest and will be a success.
To hate learning is to work against your own
best interest and invite failure.
Learn to love learning.
Teach your children to love learning.
Learning is the best road to a successful life.
9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he
that speaketh lies shall perish.
We have heard this before in verse 5.
Lying is a very destructive sin.
Proverbs 8 7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and
wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
1 Peter 3 10 For he that will love life, and see good
days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his
lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew
evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
