Proverbs 19:21 There are many devices in a man's heart;
nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall
(TLB) 21 Man proposes, but God disposes.
Our most important job is to know the Will of God
and walk and pray therein.
God will never move outside of His Will.
Never make plans without seeking the
guidance of God’s Holy Spirit.
22 The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor
man is better than a liar.
This is speaking of our heart’s desire:
Do you want to do good, to be kind, to be loyal.
God sees our heart and judges according to our
heart’s desire; not according to our ability.
23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that
hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited
Fear (or reverence) for the LORD and
His Ways makes life worth living.
Living God’s Way avoids many of the evils that are
in the lives of the wicked.
These hardships are very much the result of sin.

and he will understand knowledge.
A person of under-
standing can learn with
just a verbal warning.
26 He that wasteth (robs; mistreats) his father, and
chaseth away his mother, (doesn’t care for her) is a
son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
He ain’t no count!
27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that
causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
Hear sound instruction from a godly teacher.
Don’t listen to sinners or backsliders.
28 An ungodly witness
scorneth judgment: and the
mouth of the wicked
The ungodly do not believe in justice;
They think they can sin without consequences.
They love sin and seek opportunity to sin.
But, they will not escape judgment.
29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes
for the back of fools.
The unbelief of man does not make God’s
judgment without effect.
They will not escape.
