Insights from Proverbs 15 & 16 for the 15th & the 16th:
Reading over chapters 15 & 16, I kept thinking… well, #1. I can’t summarize this and do it justice and #3. I would be robbing people by doing so. But also #2: Why don’t they use Proverbs for like… I don’t know: job training, or a requirement for graduation in High School, or part of the citizenship process? I know that’s far-fetched, but if people actually knew these verses and applied them – our country would be safer, smarter, and more compassionate.
Its just basic steps on How to be a Hero and not a Villain.
If we took Proverbs to heart, we would be a nation of more wise co-workers, students, and parents. A nation of more compassionate leaders, laborers, and decision-makers. A nation of more better human beings. I know that is not proper English, but you know what I mean; We would all be more better.
I do want to point out a couple of verses:
“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.” – 15:3
This verse gives me deep peace.
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” – 16:9
I have this verse written on a Post-It on my computer. I read it every single day.
“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.” – 16:18
A constant reminder to Check yo’self before you Wreck yo’self.
“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” – 16:24
Words have the power to heal or hurt, how are you using yours?
“The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness.” – 16:31
That’s right; as one who is getting more & more gray hair every day: I CLAIM THIS VERSE IN JESUS NAME!
