Proverbs 10

Hey Sparkles! Happy Wednesday! For today’s Wednesday Wisdom post, I am writing some wisdom from Proverbs 10, because today is April 10.

A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother. Proverbs 10:1 – We want to be wise, not foolish because being foolish makes your parents unhappy.

Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death. Proverbs 10:2 – Don’t think you can get away with wickedness money. We want to be righteous so we are delivered from death.

A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. Proverbs 10:4 – Lazy people are not rewarded, only people with a good work ethic.

He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame. Proverbs 10:5 – We want to be prudent, not shameful. Once again, we see that laziness is never rewarded.

The wise of heart will receive commandments, but a babbling fool will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:8 – Listen to people who are wiser than you. Don’t just talk nonsense.

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. Proverbs 10:12 – Don’t hate people. It stirs up strife.

The wise lay up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near. Proverbs 10:14 – Once again, we see that fools running their mouth are a bad idea. Store up your knowledge if you want to be wise.

Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray. Proverbs 10:17 – Always follow instructions.

The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22 – If you follow God’s direction in your life, he will make you happy rich, not sad rich. Trust in God.

    We differ on this in that not all Christians who are diligent and choose righteousness become rich, even if they’re attempting to do so. But I do agree IF the God makes one rich, He adds His joy to it IF one keeps doing what God directs in His wisdom book, the Bible. So, it’s qualified a bit. I think Truitt Cathey is one great example of this having been the case. But many business owners who are Christiin and successful, do not become rich, just as not all Christian bands do not become ‘rich’ as Casting Crowns have along with much success as a band.
    I enjoy your Sparkles columns, young lady and am praying for you.
