    Proverb 22 (NKJV) The Value of a Good Name 01 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, 00 Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 02 The rich and the poor have this in common, 00 The LORD is the maker of them all. 03 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, 00 But the simple pass on and are punished. 04 By humility and the fear of the LORD 00 Are riches and honor and life. 05 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; 00 He who guards his soul...

    Proverb 21 (NKJV) The LORD Considers the Heart 01 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, 00 Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. 02 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, 00 But the LORD weighs the hearts. 03 To do righteousness and justice 00 Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. 04 A haughty look, a proud heart, 00 And the plowing of the wicked are sin. 05 The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, 00 But those of everyone who is hasty,...

    Be Wise In Who You Marry, Or You Could End Up With Family A That Makes Working Long Hours The Joy Of Your Day This Proverb is Specific To Wives & Son's, But It Goes For Both Men & Women Proverb 19:13 Two horrible things can happen to a man. He can marry an odious woman, or he can have foolish children. Both are disasters and make marriage and children very sober matters. The persons and relationships that should be for help and pleasure become like enemies. It is wisdom to carefully consider these potential threats and avoid them...

    “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, / but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Given the fact that we normally think of blood being thicker than water, this proverb is rather jarring: there are ways that a friend can be more faithful than a brother. The ESV translates the first line of the proverb this way: “A man of many companions may come to ruin.” In any translation the emphasis is on the plurality of friends. A person with many friends may still run into problems. A large number of friends does...

    October 18th is the feast of St. Luke the Evangelist. 1) Who was St. Luke? St. Luke is mentioned by name in three passages of Scripture: In Colossians 4:14, St. Paul writes: Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you. In 2 Timothy 4:11, Paul writes: Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you; for he is very useful in serving me. And in Philemon 23-24, Paul writes: Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends greetings to you, and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers. Since Luke is mentioned in three...

    They say that cash is king, but newer and more convenient payment methods are gunning for the crown. These days, more and more countries are adopting cashless payments, which includes credit card purchases, contactless payments, mobile banking apps and digital options like Apple Pay. To see which countries were adopting cashless the quickest, Forex, a global travel site, conducted a study comparing 20 of the worlds largest economies. In the report, Canada was singled out as the country most embracing cashless technology, which could be attributed to its population changing attitudes that began several years ago. A recent survey in...

    To Reach or To Repel Hostility seems to be a hallmark of this church age in a similar way that political correctness is to the world. It is alright for us to be righteously indignant as long as we do not sin. There is a place for righteous indignation, but God does not permit much anger because it is difficult not to sin when angry. That kind of anger is a "mark of the beast." Frequently, hostility is simply a denial of reality. People do not have tempers born in them; angry tempers begin to be created in childhood....

    The German government has warned the US against withdrawing from the Iran nuclear agreement. US President Donald Trump is expected to decertify Tehrans compliance with the 2015 deal in a White House speech at 12:45 p.m. (16:45 UTC) on Friday. We believe this agreement is an important instrument to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Friday. If an important country like the United States comes to a different conclusion as appears to be the case, we will work even harder with other partners to maintain this cohesion, he said. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel...

    EXCLUSIVE President Donald Trump is expected this week to decertify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known simply as the Iran deal, declaring that the agreement reached in 2015 by the U.S. and five other international powers is not in Americas national interest. The matter will then be tossed back to Congress, which will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose hefty pre-2015 sanctions. While the Presidents likely move has generated wide condemnation from foreign policy leaders who reiterate that the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has maintained Iran...

    Proverb 10 (NKJV) The Son Effect Now then, my sons, listen to me And do not depart from the words of my mouth. Proverbs 5:7 Wisdom is something that should passionately be spoken to our sons. It is something they should hear from us with a sense of urgency and importance that should ring from what we say to them. If we do not speak with this kind of passion we may have our children go the way that the son in laws of Lot went. We read in Genesis of this sad event in Genesis 19:14, " Lot...

    Commentary by "A Christian's Worldview" Lady Wisdom vs Lady Folly I love the book of Proverbs, because in so many ways they resemble the teachings of Jesus as he walked with the Disciples. It makes sense though, because Christ is Wisdom personified in the flesh of Jesus. Now as you read today's proverb, it's beneficial to understand why Solomon was led by God to refer to wisdom and folly as women. This is because the proverb is directed towards his son. In order for the boy to understand the difference between wisdom and folly, the best way was to...
