Hey Sparkles! Happy Wednesday! For today’s Wednesday Wisdom post, I am writing about Proverbs 27, and what I got out of it. As you may know, Proverbs is full of wisdom.
Proverbs 27 says,
- “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. (This reminds us to not boast about tomorrow because God is in charge of our lives.)
- Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. (By doing this, you show humility.)
- A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
- Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?
- Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
- Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. (Be careful who you hang around with.)
- One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry, everything bitter is sweet.
- Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.
- Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel. (Have good friends.)
- Do not forsake your friend and your father’s friend, and do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity.
- Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away.
- Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.
- The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.
- Take a man’s garment when he has put up security for a stranger, and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for an adulteress.
- Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, will be counted as cursing.
- A continual dripping on a rainy day and a quarrelsome wife are alike; to restrain her is to restrain the wind or to grasp oil in one’s right hand.
- Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. (Stay sharp.)
- Whoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who guards his master will be honored.
- As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man.
- Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied and never satisfied are the eyes of man.
- The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and a man is tested by his praise.
- Crush a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, yet his folly will not depart from him.
- Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds, for riches do not last forever; and does a crown endure to all generations?
- When the grass is gone and the new growth appears and the vegetation of the mountains is gathered, the lambs will provide your clothing, and the
goatsthe price of a field. There will be enough goats’ milk for your food, for the food of your household and maintenance for your girls.”
Well, that’s all I have for today, Sparkles! I hope you enjoyed this post. What stuck out to you? Tell me in the comments. Thanks for reading, and Sparkles away!
