    There are many sordid story's with many shocking facts shared in the Scriptures about God's people. One such story is the twisted account of Judah and his daughter-in-law Tamar? (Genesis 38:7-26)The story of Judah and Tamar is certainly not the most pleasant story in the Bible. In fact, most commentaries on the book of Genesis don’t spend much time on this chapter. After all, the story of Joseph (Genesis chapters 37-38), has a lot more preaching material and great spiritual lessons! Customs of the time were much different than today. In some ways they may seem archaic, yet when...

    Don’t invest in politics, the television screen or the screamers who work at turning the Western world upside down. Invest in eternity and how—hard as it may be—you can make it there Don’t wait until someone falls gravely ill to pray for them. Pray every day for other people in the most sincere way of them all: prayers fervently offered on your knees in the privacy of silence, with no one but the Creator even knowing that you are at prayer. Keep a generic prayer for strangers close to your lips: ’For any and all of those in trouble at...

    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...

    There are 23,145 verses in the Old Testament and 7,957 verses in the New Testament. That is a total of 31,102 verses from Genesis 1:1 to Revelations 22:21 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelations 22:21 In all those verses, there are many ways to interpret what each and everyone means. Without getting into the different ways people study or interpret things, I will just say that it takes the Holy Spirit to lead you to the truth. That being said, there...

    In Proverb 15, Solomon tells us how the peace may be kept, that we may know how in our places to keep it; it is by soft words. If wrath be risen like a threatening cloud, pregnant with storms and thunder, a soft answer will disperse it and turn it away. When men are provoked, speak gently to them, and give them good words, and they will be pacified, as the Ephraimites were by Gideon's mildness (Judges 8:1-3); whereas, upon a likeoccasion, by Jephthah's roughness, they were exasperated, and the consequences were bad, (Judges 12:1-3). Reason will be better...

    Today's commentary is short and to the point. It's about anger and how so often it gets the better of us all. As Christians we are to be in control of our faculties at all times, yet we are all guilty of losing control at times. Proverbs 14:29 tells us to be patient and understanding, because a quick-tempered is a sign of foolishness. A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly. Proverbs 14:29 We all have the power to chose how we will react in any given situation. When we are expecting something and it...

    Did you know that the Bible has more to say on laziness than drunkenness? Yet, how often are we quick to judge someone when they've had a bit too much to drink, but neglect to chastise another person who sits around all day and does nothing? Laziness is a pervasive, insidious disease in our society. One that seems to be growing in leaps and bounds, because no one seems to want to work hard anymore. They want the easy life. If they can't find a job that pays good without requiring them to break a sweat, then they would...

    When the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream, He said to him; , "Ask! What shall I give you?" 1 Kings 3:5 Solomon could have asked for anything his heart desired; wealth, women, slaves, victory in battle over all of God's enemies, or even a very long healthy life. Yet, he asked for none of those things. Instead, Solomon humbled himself and said to the LORD; ".....give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" 1 Kings...

    When I read the president’s speech in Warsaw the other day, I was stunned. Who could have “thunk” it? Certainly in my lifetime, I have never read a presidential address that caught me by such surprise. It was the context that grabbed me. Western civilization has a context, and that’s what has been missing from presidential addresses for a long, long time, perhaps with the exception of Ronald Reagan. But this speech seems to grasp the contextual situation much better than Reagan did in terms of the full scope of the struggle for survival going on in our world. A...

    Gaining wisdom does not make you arrogant, it makes you humble. That's because when you know the truth you realize how stupid you have been, and then you will desire to help others who are as foolish as you once were. Thus the reason I enjoy sharing a Proverb a Day, while sharing what nuggets of gold I found found in this wonderful book. When one understands that Christ is the Wisdom of God, how could you not desire to have that which encompasses the very brain of our Creator? I had a college history professor who answered a...

    While the protest crazies were burning Hamburg, Merkel played the fiddle to the tune of ‘Ode to Joy’ Humanity has a thirst that Coca Cola and Pepsi can never quench; a hunger no fast food outlet can satisfy because it’s a ravenous hunger of the heart. No politician, no propagandizing media has ever been able to stop mankind’s age-old stampede to the Holy Face of God. Just as iron filings are drawn to the magnet, humans, wired from birth by a supernatural force, continue to seek out their Creator.

    Probably the greatest example of the consequences mentioned in Proverbs 7, is the way Delilah sold out for some silver. Only the betrayal of Christ by Judas', will you find a greater example of betrayal. However, this Proverb is about a man being brought down by a harlot, so Samson's by Delilah fits for today. Many men through the ages have lost everything, because they cherished the moment over their future. I would lie if I said I never fell for such a woman, as many men have. Mine cost me my first marriage, and to this day I...

    There are only a handful of passages in Scripture that strike fear into oneÂ’s life like Proverbs 6:16-19, the seven things that are an abomination to God. This passage which lays out a list of sins that God hates. In this list we all see a reflection of our own sinful hearts and intents. This list of sins finds it's remedy in the cross. I offer you a commentary by the greatest evangelist of our era, Billy Graham on the things the Lord finds abominable. The Things God Hates by Billy Graham We in the church have failed to...

    Proverb 5 specifically speaks to a man and his ways of wondering, but it should be taken as a warning against both men and women. With families struggling financially to make ends meet, both husband and wife spend significant time away from each other at work. The close proximity with other individuals who are also struggling emotionally and looking for satisfaction from someone other than their spouse can be unbearable at times. Temptation to wonder. is around every corner. Society today, tells women they rule, so the pressure on them is as likely to be as strong if not...
