September 25 2009
Proverbs 25:1 →Just remember, if you give credit, it's not plagiarism.
Proverbs 25:4-5 →Give the government some time, perhaps if we get rid of all the dishonest people of both parties from Washington, and things will improve.
Proverbs 25:6-7 →Let God handle your exaltation. He knows whether or not you can handle it as well as whether or not you deserve it.
Proverbs 25:9-10 →Don't betray and destroy another for your wealth and aggrandizement. It's not worth the cost.
Proverbs 25:11 →Learn to listen and say the right things at the right times.
Proverbs 25:13 →For Christians, are we being that trustworthy messenger?
Proverbs 25:21-22 →Did you know that in some Middle Eastern cultures at the time, and to this day, burning coals are carried in firepans on people's heads? Yep. And how do you help out someone in the desert at night? Heap coals on their heads. Really. So, by caring for your enemies, you might be helping their survival. Which is good, because it gives them time to repent and get right before God.
Proverbs 25:23 →Watch your tongue, because actions follow looks.
Proverbs 25:24 →Be careful who you marry. If you think you're quarreling now, wait until you're living together. Seriously folks.
Proverbs 25:28 →Are you lacking self-control? Then anyone can attack and conquer you. He who angers you controls you. Practice self-control.
