Proverbs 20c

  1. 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. July 30, 2014
  2. 2. 2 Proverbs 20:14 It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth. Be wary; a wheeler-dealer is not always honest. When he’s buying, he puts down the product. When he’s selling, he builds it up. He is a cheat.
  3. 3. 3 15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. There is nothing on earth as valuable as genuine knowledge of God. I’m talking about an intimate relationship with the True and living God. “Lips of knowledge” indicates that he teaches the know- ledge of God.
  4. 4. 4 16 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. (NIV) 16 Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger; hold it in pledge if he does it for a wayward woman. Get collateral for loans to strangers, especially if they are of questionable character. DVT
  5. 5. 5 17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. Wealth gotten by fraud may be sweet, for the carnal mind takes pleasure in the success of wicked devices; but it will be bitter in the reflection. Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. This is true for all sin; there is pleasure in sin for a season, but it is short-lived and turns to unpleasant memories. “What was I thinking?”
  6. 6. 6 18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war. Especially in spiritual matters and spiritual warfare, seek the counsel of wise men. Heed not the counsel of sinners or backsliders; they believe not Truth!
  7. 7. 7 19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. He may say pretty things to your face, But he speaks ill to your back.. This is saying that a gossip and a flatterer are often the same person.
  8. 8. 8 20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness. In the Old Testament a person who cursed his parents violated the fifth commandment and committed a capital offense. Death was the penalty for cursing (and rebelling against) parents. To have one’s lamp... snuffed out was a picturesque way of referring to death The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty.
  9. 9. 9 Exodus 21 17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death. Exodus 21 15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death. Deuteronomy 21 18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
  10. 10. 10 19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; 20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
  11. 11. 11 Our culture has come to believe that a simple spanking is mistreating children. The devil wants people to believe that, because it makes it easier for him to corrupt our children. If we don’t raise our children to know God, to love His Ways, to go to church, and worship the True God, They will fall into sin; the devil will capture their minds.
