    Proverb 23 (NKJV) Listen to Your Father 01 When you sit down to eat with a ruler, 00 Consider carefully what is before you; 02 And put a knife to your throat 00 If you are a man given to appetite. 03 Do not desire his delicacies, 00 For they are deceptive food. 04 Do not overwork to be rich; 00 Because of your own understanding, cease! 05 Will you set your eyes on that which is not? 00 For riches certainly make themselves wings; 00 They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. 06 Do not eat the...

    Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, Church bullies can keep a church from being healthy and well balanced. I hope this helps for anyone who recognizes this problem in their church. Proverb 22 (NKJV) The Value of a Good Name01 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...

    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,...

    Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise. Proverb 20:1 (NKJV) Allow me to begin my commentary by stating that it is my belief that God does condone drinking alcoholic beverages. However, as with everything in life, moderation is the key. Now for those who claim God is against drinking I would like to refer you to the wedding where Jesus performed His first miracle by changing the water into wine in John 2:1-12. My point of emphasis in the account is the part where the master of the...

    Proverb 19 (NKJV) The Fear of the Lord Leads to Life 01 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity 00 Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. 02 Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, 00 And he sins who hastens with his feet. 03 The foolishness of a man twists his way, 00 And his heart frets against the LORD. 04 Wealth makes many friends, 00 But the poor is separated from his friend. 05 A false witness will not go unpunished, 00 And he who...

    Proverb 18 (NKJV) The Name of the LORD Is a Strong Tower 01 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; 00 He rages against all wise judgment. 02 A fool has no delight in understanding, 00 But in expressing his own heart. 03 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; 00 And with dishonor comes reproach. 04 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; 00 The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook. 05 It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, 00 Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. 06 A fool's...

    Proverb 17 (NKJV) The LORD Tests Hearts 01 Better is a dry morsel with quietness, 00 Than a house full of feasting with strife. 02 A wise servant will rule over a son who causes shame, 00 And will share an inheritance among the brothers. 03 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, 00 But the LORD tests the hearts. 04 An evildoer gives heed to false lips; 00 A liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue. 05 He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker; 00 He who is glad at calamity will not...

    Proverb 15 (NKJV) A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath 01 A soft answer turns away wrath, 00 But a harsh word stirs up anger. 02 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, 00 But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. 03 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, 00 Keeping watch on the evil and the good. 04 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, 00 But perverseness in it breaks the spirit. 05 A fool despises his father's instruction, 00 But he who receives correction is prudent. 06 In the house of the...

    Wealth Without Sorrow Have you ever noticed how sorrow seems to attach itself to the riches of this world? If you havent noticed, dear one, perhaps you should.Its time we get wise to the scheme and stop buying in. The prince of this world would tell us that money buys happiness. It doesnt. When we look closely at those who have laid claim to the worlds riches, we rarely find the happiness it promises.Instead, we find sorrow. Brokenness. Heartache. Depression. Addiction. Hatred. Loneliness.Yet for some reason, we still believe the lie. We still long for the blessing of the...

    Mind you, Proverb 6:34-35 was written some 2900 years ago when women had no power. It was normal for men to have multiple wives and concubines. After all, Solomon himself had some 700 wives and 300 concubines. However, times have changed, and women can be as vengeful if not more so than men when they find out their husband has been sleeping around with another woman. This Proverb can be used for both both men and women. Prison is filled with those who who have gotten revenge to the ultimate degree. Thus the Lord warns us all to not...
