Today we read Proverbs 13 and I would like to share with you what the LORD showed me!
First thing that I saw was what I wise child should do!
A wise child accepts a parent’s discipline;a mocker refuses to listen to correction. (NLT)
Second thing that I saw was that what your words mean!
2) Wise words will win you a good meal, but treacherous people have an appetite for violence. 3) Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. (NLT)
Third thing that I saw was the difference between good and evil!
4) Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. 5) The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace. 6) Godliness guards the path of the blameless, but the evil are misled by sin. 7) Some who are poor pretend to be rich; others who are rich pretend to be poor. 8) The rich can pay a ransom for their lives, but the poor won’t even get threatened. (NLT)
Forth thing that I saw was that difference between the godly and the ungodly!
9) The life of the godly is full of light and joy, but the light of the wicked will be snuffed out. 10) Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise. 11)Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time. 12) Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. 13) People who despise advice are asking for trouble; those who respect a command will succeed. 14) The instruction of the wise is like a life-giving fountain; those who accept it avoid the snares of death. 15) A person with good sence is respected; a treacherous person is heading for destruction. 16) Wise people think before they act; fools don’t–and even brag about their foolishness. 17) An unreliable messenger stumbles into trouble, but a reliable messenger beings healing. (NLT)
Fifth thing that I saw was what walking with the wise and walking with the fools will do to you!
Proverbs 13:20-23, 25
20) Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. 21) Trouble chases sinner’s, while blessings reward the righteous. 22) Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner’s wealth passes to the godly. 23) A poor person’s farm may produce much food, but injustice sweeps it all away. (NLT)
