Wisdom for Life's Journey - Proverbs 9

main image

We learn from the scriptures that attitude means so much. Wisdom teaches that one can do little to help those who refuse to receive help. Sometimes we can have the best intentions and still be rejected by others. Proverbs 9 says that a wise person will receive correction and profit from it. A just person is able to be taught and will increase in knowledge.
The fear of the Lord is where wisdom begins and through this knowledge we can better understand the will of God for our life.  The attitude by which we approach life greatly influences what we receive in life. The humble in spirit will be blessed by God to grow in wisdom and understanding. The proud will suffer for lack of wisdom that comes from the Lord. May we daily seek God with the attitude that spending time with Him will result in wisdom for life’s journey.

Wisdom for Life's Journey - Proverbs 6

main image

God reveals Himself to us through His word. What we can know about Him and how we can honor Him is found in His Word. We know from Proverbs 6 that God is serious about us keeping our vows and promises. We also learn from Him that there are several things that God hates and are an abomination to Him. God hates pride and a lying tongue and those who devise evil plans. When we look at our society, we see much that God hates.
It is amazing to see that several of these things that God hates have to do with the tongue. Lying, bearing false witness and sowing discord among brothers are all sins of the tongue. Be on guard for a critical spirit that can injure others. Be careful not to spread rumors or be critical of others. God hates these things. We need to spend time with Him everyday to ask for deliverance from a root of bitterness or a critical spirit. “ The commandment is a lamp and the law a light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life.” Proverbs 6:23
