Insights from Proverbs 18 for the 18th:
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it & are safe (v.10).”
I have become increasingly sensitive to taking the Lord’s name in vain. Our culture is so flippant with OMG. Its like nails on a chalkboard to me. The name of the Lord is important. It’s a strong tower. We run to it. It protects it. Let us not become callous to it’s misuse.
“Death & life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit (v.21).”
We can speak life or speak death. That is tremendous power. More than we know. Be extremely cautious with that responsibility.
“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord (v.22).”
A good thing is a God thing. Robert Morris tells the story of a man who called his wife, “Good thing.” She was his good thing from the Lord. If you have found your good thing, thank the Lord & do your best to let her know how much you appreciate her. If you’ve yet to find your good thing, serve the Lord until you do. Then serve the Lord together.
My Good thing is the best thing that ever happened to me.
